As one of the world's greatest centers for arts and culture, New York City has slowly begun reopening its famous attractions, including the Museum of Natural History, the Guggenheim art gallery and the Bronx Zoo. The latest announcement builds upon the reopening of performing arts and live entertainment venues at limited capacities last month.
Now, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced tickets will go on sale on May 6 for shows that will start September 14, and they will be made available at 100% capacity.
There is also work to be done ahead of the September to ensure safe and heathy environments for audiences, performers and employees. The reassuring note for audiences is that if performances need to be postponed due to public health conditions, theaters have planned to offer customer-friendly refunds and exchange policies.
