COVID Surge in New York Causes Broadway Cancellations Through Christmas

With the surge of COVID cases caused by the omicron variant, New York City has become a hot spot for the virus once again and Broadway has not been immune to the spread. Most shows, including Hamilton, Aladdin, and The Lion King have all halted performances until after Christmas to help slow the spread and allow infected cast members to heal and rest before returning to theaters.
