According to the New York Times, industry leaders expect Broadway's 41 theaters to remain closed past June 7-maybe even past July 4 or Labor Day.

Yep. Until there is either a vaccine and mass inoculation, or universal rapid repetitive testing, or both, this shiat is going to last a long time.

I saw Stomp on March 12th in Little Rock, one day before our state banned all gatherings above 50 and now it's down to no more than 10.  Didn't think it would be the literal last show in my state.  Glad I made it in under the wire.  I had wanted to see them live since the mid 90s. One of the opening bits was a guy running out on stage and squirting a blast of hand sanitizer in all the performers hands before throwing each of them a broom. It was hilarious but at the same time a sobering reality check.

Welp, plenty more "vacation time" ahead of me, then...

When things go back to normal, are we going to get the Broadway Butthole Revival of Cats? Because apparently, there is a demand.

They're dead wrong
I know they are
'Cuz I can play this here guitar
And I won't quit 'til I'm a star...

I'm right there with you since I'm basically a hired gun stage musician.   Going to that show in little rock was the first time in years I've even had the opportunity to see a live gig that I wasn't playing at.  I spend waaay too much time on busses heading here and there. It's been hell trying to get my state to pay for unemployment too.  The management company I work for is based out of another state so basically I'm farked. Stay strong, the industry will always need good talent once it's back running again.

Early morning Manhattan
Ocean winds blow on the land
The Movie-Palace is now undone
The all-night watchmen have had their fun
Sleeping cheaply on the midnight show
It's the same old ending-time to go
Get out
It seems they cannot leave their dream
There's something moving in the sidewalk steam
And the lamb lies down on Broadway
Nightime's flyers feel their pains
Drugstore takes down the chains
Metal motion comes in bursts
But the gas station can quench that thirst
Suspension cracked on unmade road
The trucker's eyes read 'Overload'
And out on the subway
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Exits into daylight, spraygun hid
And the lamb lies down on Broadway
The lamb seems right out of place
Yet the Broadway street scene finds a focus in its face
Somehow it's lying there
Brings a stillness to the air
Though man-made light, at night is very bright
There's no whitewash victim
As the neons dim, to the coat of white
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Wipes his gun - he's forgotten what he did
And the lamb lies down on Broadway
Suzanne tired her work all done
Thinks money-honey-be on-neon
Cabman's velvet glove sounds the horn
And the sawdust king spits out his scorn
Wonder women you can draw your blind
Don't look at me! I'm not your kind
I'm Rael
Something inside me has just begun
Lord knows what I have done
And the lamb lies down on Broadway
On Broadway
They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
