Broadway throws open its doors as it returns from its longest shutdown


New York City’s theaters are finally reopening after they were shut down on March 12, 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic began to hit the city. This has been the longest shutdown in Broadway’s history. Major hits like “Lion King” and “Hamilton” are back, and smaller productions are returning too. NewsHour Weekend’s Zachary Green spoke with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Martyna Majok, whose new play, “Sanctuary City,” opened a year-and-a-half later than planned.
