As always, the entertainment capital of the world’s first priority is to keep its visitors healthy and safe. Therefore, the state government has put into effect a basic COVID-19 protocol. This initial phase of entertainment allows for a maximum audience of 250 guests, physically distanced at six feet between parties and a minimum of 25 feet from on-stage performers.
Please note in some cases the show’s venue may reflect a change from previous performances in order to meet all guidelines. Also, each showroom may differ from others per their size and seating arrangement. Masks are required at all shows.
