The Great White Road was dark on Christmas Eve as two Broadway productions were completely shut down due to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

The “Waiter” and “Thoughts of a Colored Man” shows said on Friday that their performances would not reopen after their final shows earlier this week, Playbill reported.

Sarah Bareilles ’“ The Waitress ”returned to Broadway in September and was expected to continue next month, but her limited presence at the Ethel Barrimor Theater was also hampered by viral cases between the actors and the company, Playbill said.

The hit hit nominated by Tony is known as the first Broadway musical to be written, written, directed and choreographed by women. Since 2016, he has performed 1,544 performances.

“Thoughts” – a play by Keenan Scott II, a study of seven black Brooklyn men one day – had 79 performances at the Golden Theater, but was surrounded by cases of COVID among its actors. His final show was on Wednesday.

According to Playbill, Sarah Bareilles’ film “The Waitress” was destroyed due to ongoing COVID-19 cases.

“While it wasn’t the result we expected, being part of this historic season on Broadway was the greatest privilege of our lives,” said producers Brian Moreland, Ron Simons, Diana DiMenna, Candy Burruss, Cheryl Lee Ralph and Samira Wiley. This is stated in the message Playbill.

“The big return of the theater industry is more than the success or failure of any performance. As a society, we remain uninterrupted, uninterrupted, and unstoppable. We are not as proud as we are now.
