Crossword: Missing Broadway? We Are Too, but This Puzzle Looks to Its Return
This week's theme involves Broadway shows that we hope to see back onstage next year.
Broadway shut down quickly in the middle of March this year, while more than two dozen shows were running, and a few more had just begun previews. Sadly, none of those shows are onstage now, but they are scheduled to return next year, assuming we find a way to rein in the coronavirus. The current hiatus aside, I wanted to revisit the shows that had performances underway when Broadway went dark but that have plans to return — some are long-running favorites and some you might not be familiar with yet. In any case, we miss you, Broadway, and we're hoping for a quick return. Happy puzzling!
