In May, "Frozen" was the first show to announce it would not reopen when Broadway returns. Some productions that had not yet opened, such as "Hangman" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", were canceled entirely, while others have been postponed.

Broadway will remain shut down until at least the end of May.
