Today on Broadway: Friday, May 1, 2020

Broadway community left out of Cuomo advisory board, updates on Nick Cordero’s condition, and more COVID-19-related news. Plus, the Drama League announces its nominations, updates from “The Prom” movie, and today’s feel-good recommendations.

“Today on Broadway” is a daily, Monday through Friday, podcast hitting the top theatre headlines of the day.
