Today on Broadway: Wednesday, May 6, 2020 & Matthew Aaron Stern

New COVID-19 shutdown updates from both home and across the pond as the West End extends its shutdown, London’s “Sunday in the Park With George” postpones, and more.

Plus, James chats with Broadway stage manager Matthew Aaron Stern, founder of the Broadway Stage Management Symposium, about this year’s upcoming conference, which has gone completely virtual.
