Which Broadway shows are currently playing? Get last-minute Broadway tickets
The show must go on, and Broadway shows are leading the charge with safety protocols and regular testing to keep casts, crews, and audiences safe during the ongoing pandemic and to prevent another shutdown.
However, as shows take on increased risks and safety measures, there will undoubtedly be some performance cancellations, as we’ve seen over the past week with the rise of the Omicron variant. But just because a show cancels doesn’t mean that Broadway or theatre is in jeopardy. These cancellations are merely a result of increased safety measures to keep everyone onstage and off safe.
There are unprecendented times, but unlike in 2020, there *are* still Broadway shows playing every night. You can get tickets to see a Broadway show this holiday season and rest assured that you are in a safe environment.
