Rules for Shows Beyond Broadway

No theatres beyond Broadway are checking vaccination status, and very few require masks. Exceptions include The Tank and JACK, which both mandate masks for every performance. A handful of additional theatres hold designed masked performances. Before buying tickets to any event, it's imperative to read the specific rules of the venue or production so you are prepared.
