Dr. Jonathan Reiner (CNN Medical Analyst -- Professor of Medicine at George Washington University Hospital): Broadway Shows MUST Require Covid Passport in Order to Re-Open
Posted by: BroadwayTonyJ 08:31 pm EDT 04/27/21

Reiner just stated this very definitively to Erin Burnett on CNN. He has a lot of very impressive credentials. He is one of the medical analysts that CNN has on air regularly and is an expert on the covid virus. He also apparently has seen a lot of Broadway shows because he has a very significant knowledge regarding the layout of Broadway theaters, the close quarters, washroom facilities, almost every detail you can think of.

He did not speak in generalities like Dr. Fauci. He very specifically talked about Broadway shows, the need to fill up theaters to turn a profit, and the necessity to assure audiences absolutely that they can attend a performance safely. I have no idea if the powers in charge will take his advice and mandate what he is recommending. I assume that would be up to Cuomo and de Blasio for theatre in New York.

I'm sure a lot of people on this board will not want to accept what he just said. However, I've been told the same thing from various people I know in both Chicago and New York who are involved with the theatre -- but they all insist "Don't quote me. This has to be 'off the record' ".
