When New York reached 70 percent of the population being fully vaccinated, they celebrated with a fireworks display over Niagara Falls. Before the rains chased everyone away on August 21, New York City was celebrating New York City and their return after having some of the worst numbers during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

September 17 to 19 Broadway will celebrate the reopening of theatres with “Curtain Up!” an outdoor festival in Times Square. The celebration includes live performances, a concert, and panel discussions.

The highlight of the festival will be a live performance on September 19 by some Broadway favourites.

Playbill, the Times Square Alliance, Prudential, and The Broadway League are sponsoring the three day event. All city, state, and federal Covid protocols will be enforced.
