Broadway & COVID-19 Updates

The owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theatres in New York City will continue to require vaccinations for audience members, as well as performers, backstage crew, and theatre staff, for all performances through February 28, 2022. We have also initiated new provisions to welcome international visitors and children under 12 years old. Masks will continue to be required for audiences inside the theatre, except while actively eating or drinking in designated locations.

Under the updated policy, guests age 12 and older will need to be Fully Vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine AND present a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport. (Guests 12-18 may use a government-issued ID or school ID - no photo required.) “Fully vaccinated” means on the date of the performance a guest is at least 14 days after their second dose of a two dose COVID-19 vaccine OR at least 14 days after their single dose of an approved single dose COVID-19 vaccine.

For international guests TWO doses of any “mix and match” combination of an FDA or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccine are acceptable.

Guests under 12, when accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult may enter the theatre with ONE of the following:
Proof of ONE dose (through February 28, 2022 only) of an FDA or WHO approved vaccine at least 14 days before the performance date OR
A negative COVID-19 PCR test performed by a medical provider within 72 hours of the performance start time. The test results must clearly show the date and time of the test; OR
A negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time. The test results must clearly show the date and time of the test.

For more information regarding safety and safety protocols, please consult your show’s official website or the website of the theatre you are planning to visit.

Many shows and theaters have relaxed their policies on refunds and exchanges so you may buy with confidence. For specific information, please contact your point of purchase.

The Metropolitan Opera requires that all audience members are fully vaccinated in order to attend a performance, including children ages 5-11. All audience members will also be asked to sign a COVID waiver. See full details here.

If you are unable to attend a Met performance for any reason, you will be eligible for a complimentary exchange into a future performance. Exchanges may be requested up until the performance curtain time, and ticket buyers will be asked to pay the difference in price should the replacement performance ticket price exceed that of the original ticket.
