With Broadway not opening back up until at least 2021, theater performers haven’t been able to do what they love.
But, some have still found a way to do it off-stage!
Groups of Broadway performers have been gathering for choreographed dance numbers in the middle of Times Square every week for the past nine weeks, according to the plaza’s Instagram account.
Of course, face masks are worn by all and dances are spaced out.
The performances have been called the #TSQProject (follow the hashtag to see more), and it was created by Jena VanElslande, who was part of the King Kong Broadway cast before theaters were shut down. She said she wanted to create “a safe outlet for performing artists from the Broadway community and beyond to unite, breathe and move together and help bring LIFE and ENERGY back to New York City.”
The videos captured are incredibly uplifting. Enjoy below:
