BREAKING NEWS: There has been report of Coronavirus on the Great White Way. It has been revealed that an anonymous usher who works at both the current Broadway revival of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and the smash hit SIX has allegedly tested positive for COVID-19 last week. The unknown usher is currently under quarantine. Currently, a deep cleaning is scheduled to take place overnight at the Booth Theatre (where VIRGINIA WOLF is performing) and the Brooks Atkinson Theatre (where SIX is performing).
WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOLF and SIX (both currently in previews) are still scheduled to go on this evening. However, it has been said that if anyone is ill, stay home and the Box Office will be able to help Theatergoers either get refunds or have their tickets exchanged for a future performance. In addition, majority of shows here on Broadway have stopped the company from stage dooring and having guests come backstage once the virus is gone. No word has been said if shows are reported to shut down for a few days / weeks.
The usher is now under quarantine.
