Deadline Hollywood reports:
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says widespread, national use of an efficacious vaccine this spring and early summer could allow Broadway to retake the stage by late summer or early fall.
In an interview with NBC New York’s David Ushery last night, Fauci was asked when Broadway might safely reopen its doors to audiences. (Watch the interview below.)
“I think that will be completely dependent on the uptake of vaccines by the people of the country and specifically the people of New York,” Fauci said. Since New York and Broadway rely so heavily on tourists, Fauci said the entire country would need to have access to a vaccine.
