Great White Way

Great White Way. Cuomo is promoting the Musical and Theatrical Tax Credit to revitalize the entertainment industry. Too bad his lockdowns decimated Broadway. The glittering lights were shut down for over a year. Irreparable harm was done to theatres and their employees. Actors, musicians, and stage hands were laid off by the thousands. Theatre owners were financially strangled with no revenue coming in for 18 months. The industry which is the soul of New York nearly folded. Now the Governor is pushing tax credits to undo the devastation he has caused. It is too little too late. Like the rest of the state economy Broadway was brought to its knees. The damage was unnecessary as the lockdowns were excessive and overkill. Great White Way. The resilience of live theatre will be a litmus test of post pandemic New York.
