“The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on Broadway and the Touring Broadway industry,” said Performing Arts Fort Worth President & CEO Dione Kennedy. “Our industry was one of the first to close down and will be one of the last to reopen. The touring industry is based on an economic model of 100% capacity, so until it is safe and appropriate, our theatrical community will face ongoing challenges. We look forward to reopening our doors and welcoming patrons back to Bass Hall when it is safe and appropriate.”
