Broadway theaters can reopen at 100 percent capacity on Sept. 14, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.

Tickets for shows will go on sale beginning Thursday, the governor said during a press briefing in Manhattan.

When asked whether vaccinations against the coronavirus will be required for theater lovers, state budget director Rob Mujica said, “It’s not finalized yet.”

“But we’re going to keep looking at the numbers, keep looking at how many people are getting vaccinated. In between now and then we’ll be doing pilots for indoor programs and slowly increasing the amount of capacity there,” Mujica said.

Mujica added, “As the governor pointed out the question is, will people feel comfortable sitting next, right next to another individual, without knowing their vaccination status? And what we do know from surveys is that the answer is no. And they would prefer to know the vaccination status of the person next to them.”
