Disney Suspends Broadway Performances

Disney on Broadway has suspended performances starting on March 12th through April 12th. The announcement was made on the Disney on Broadway website. Along with the closure of these shows, tickets will be refunded from the place where they were purchased. These suspensions effect three Disney shows: Frozen, The Lion King, and Aladdin.

The closure of these performances comes after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released guidelines on limiting gatherings of groups over 500 people. These guidelines went into effect on Friday at 5:00 PM.

Here is the post that was found on the Disney on Broadway website:
