You will no longer be required to wear a mask to see a Broadway show, at least for the month of July. The Broadway League announcing the new "mask optional" policy for 41 theatres in New York City.

Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League said, “Millions of people enjoyed the unique magic of Broadway by watching the 75th Tony Award Ceremony recently. Millions more have experienced Broadway LIVE in theatres in New York City and throughout the U.S., since we reopened last fall. We’re thrilled to welcome even more of our passionate fans back to Broadway in the exciting 22-23 season that has just begun.”

The new policy will be evaluated on a month to month basis. The Broadway League is still encouraging audience members to wear masks in theatres.
