Life is returning to normal in New York City as more businesses and events return, including Broadway shows, which will be ready to reopen this September.

"Broadway is a major part of our state's identity and economy, and we are thrilled that the curtains will rise again," said Cuomo.
Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin said she is "thrilled" with the governor's announcement, saying that the association remains "cautiously optimistic about Broadway's ability to resume performances this fall and [is] happy that fans can start buying tickets again."
The announcement comes just one week after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that he plans on fully reopening the city at 100% capacity, including restaurants, gyms, and office buildings, on July 1.
