I have tickets for a show on the 27th, so if we could just wrap this whole world pandemic thing up by then, it would be much appreciated.

Seems for like a PSA about it.

Yeah if you are sick stay the hell away from large groups.

I saw Six on Friday and West Side Story on Saturday.

Six was the first time I've ever seen a line for the bathroom sinks at intermission. And at West Side Story, the lady sitting in front of me handed out Lysol wipes to everyone sitting nearby.

Perhaps if ticket prices were reasonable, people wouldn't feel obliged to go to the show while sick

Can they wrap it up this week?  We have tickets for Beetlejuice on the 14th.

I have tix for three shows at the end of May. Hoping NYC isn't a post-apocalyptic wasteland by then

As someone who booked a cruise in May right before all of...... this started, I feel your pain.

"Anyone who is experiencing cold or flu symptoms, or who is not feeling well, is encouraged to stay home and contact the point of purchase for more information about ticket exchanges and policies," the statement says.

And what are those policies? That you can always exchange a ticket for a future one? If it were that simple, they probably would have just said so. I suspect it's not that simple. But under the present circumstances, that would be the right thing to do, considering how much money people had to shell out. With the added incentive that you're a lot more likely to enjoy the show when you're healthy.

My son is a performer in a national tour, so I'm getting a kick, etc.

I've a feeling we may not get to see him when the show swings through our town in May. As in I'll be surprised if the show doesn't get shut down at some point. They're currently still pulling in good crowds. That can't be good.

It depends on where you bought your tickets.  If you bought them directly from the venue, they can usually help you out.  But a lot of people buy from third-party resellers, and those policies vary drastically.

Refund my ticket, or I show up anyway.

That should get the refund processed.
