The owners and operators of all 41 Broadway theaters in New York City will require audience members and performers as well as staff to be vaccinated for all performances in the month of October.
Masks will also be required for spectators inside cinema halls, except if they are eating or drinking at designated places, the release said.
Broadway has been hit hard during the pandemic as theaters have been closed due to Covid-19.
Under the joint policy, guests will be required to be fully immunized with a vaccine authorized by the FDA or WHO to attend a performance and must show proof upon entry.
According to the statement, exceptions will be made for children under the age of 12, as well as children with a medical condition or close religious belief that precludes vaccination.
The announcement comes as Hollywood is also grappling with how to safely continue working.
