Broadway has taken a major hit this week after several shows, including ‘Hamilton,’ also canceled some performances due to COVID concerns.
Some of the major musicals include ‘Hamilton,’ ‘Tina – The Tina Turner Musical,’ ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,’ and ‘Ain’t Too Proud,’ all of which had some shows canceled due to positive COVID cases.
