Automated Refunds Issued As Broadway Goes Dark

The New York Post reports:

Telecharge, the service that bills itself as the official ticketing site for Broadway and Off-Broadway, will automatically refund Broadway tickets purchased for performances between today and April 12. The tickets will be refunded back to purchasers’ credit cards.

Rival service Ticketmaster posted notices on its website for some Broadway shows indicating that internet and phone orders will automatically be cancelled and refunded, with other refunds at point of purchase.

The automatic refunds were put in place today following the announcement of a month-long shutdown of Broadway productions due to coronavirus concerns.
