Broadway theaters will continue to require that all theatergoers are masked and fully vaccinated in order to gain entry, owners and operators of the 41 Broadway houses said Friday.

The Broadway League, the group that represents theater owners, said that the policy would remain in force until at least April 30, 2022.  The April 30 date was originally announced on January 10.

The action continues a policy first announced at the end of July 2021 that required theatergoers to have proof of fully vaccinated status via a CDC or WHO vaccination card showing an FDA or WHO approved vaccine as well as a government-issued photo ID. Theatergoers between 12 and 18 can use a school ID in lieu of one issued by government.  Those under five do not need to have a form of identification.

The policy is also in effect for all performers, theater staff, and backstage crewmembers.

The League said that theater owners are “monitoring the science and have decided to wait until April 15, at which time they will affirm the protocols beyond April 30.”

Theatergoers are required to wear face masks when in the building, except when eating or drinking.
