‘Disney on Broadway’ Shares Hopeful Message on the 1-Year Anniversary of Theater Closings. Just over a year ago the world was changed forever as the COVID-19 pandemic struck and caused an unprecedented amount of chaos as we were forced to quickly adapt to the new way of life. Restaurants, Theaters, and entertainment facilities were closed rapidly and have only just begun to return to business, though with stricter health and safety guidelines than before.
To mark the historic anniversary of Broadway going dark, Disney on Broadway has shared a hope filled message with fans after announcements that theaters could raise the curtains once again this April.
The post reads:
“Today marks a full year since Broadway went dark, so we pause to honor the artists and audiences who long to return to the shows we love. Thanks for sticking with us – together we will create the magic of live theatre again. We look forward to safely making our way back. – Disney on Broadway“
Currently, Disney has two shows set to remain on Broadway once theaters reopen, Aladdin and The Lion King, but had made the decision to cancel Frozen last year to make way for a new musical. The most likely replacement being Hercules which has been reimagined for the stage by famed composer Alan Menken.
