Sidenotes:
There are three topics that I have been pondering. I think these will be big stories for Broadway, but we don’t fully understand the impact that they will have just yet:

First with coronavirus causing major trade shows and meetings to be cancelled, changing travel plans for many, and countries locking down borders, how with this affec the Broadway community, both inside and outside of New York?

Second: the Harvey Weinstein’s conviction is shaking the foundations of Hollywood power brokers. Will this earthquake make it to Broadway? Remember, Weinstein was convicted in New York City. Are we to believe that these terrible actions do not happen in our community as well?

And third, Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, suddenly and unexpectedly resigned on Tuesday night. Aside from not having a clear (believeable) understanding of why Iger stepped down, what does that mean for the new Disney CEO? Will the next Disney CEO embrace Broadway?

These are just some things to ponder.
