  • STIMULUS CHECK IS GOING STRAIGHT TO.

  • AND OUR NEIGHBORS, ALL 41 BROADWAY THEATERS, HAVE HAD TO

  • REMAIN CLOSED SINCE LAST MARCH.

  • PROVING IT COULD BE HARDER TO GET HAMILTON TICKETS.

  • THE YEAR-LONG CLOSURE HAS DEVASTATED THE BROADWAY

  • COMMUNITY, BECAUSE WHEN THE THEATERS SHUT DOWN, SO DID MOST

  • OF THE INDUSTRY'S NEARLY 97,000 JOBS, INCLUDING THOSE OF

  • THOUSANDS OF BROADWAY ACTORS, SINGERS, AND DANCERS.

  • OR AS THEY'RE SOMETIMES CALLED, "HEY, WEREN'T YOU A CORPSE IN AN

  • EPISODE OF 'LAW AND ORDER'?" LUCKILY, ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE

  • ACTORS FUND ARE DOING AMAZING WORK TO SUPPORT THE BROADWAY

  • COMMUNITY.

  • SINCE MARCH, THE ACTORS FUND HAS DISTRIBUTED MORE THAN $20

  • MILLION IN EMERGENCY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO MORE THAN 15,000

  • PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY.

  • BUT THERE'S ANOTHER GROUP AFFECTED BY THE ONGOING BROADWAY

  • SHUTDOWN, AND NO ONE HAS GIVEN THEM THE SYMPATHY THEY DESERVE.

  • UNTIL NOW.

  • >> HELLO.

  • I'M BROADWAY LEGEND AND IT'S IN MY CONTRACT THAT THEY HAVE TO

  • >> I STABBED OUT THESE EYES.

  • WHY SHOULD I HAVE EYES?

  • WHY WHEN NOTHING I SAW WAS WORTH SEEING?

  • NOTHING!

  • >> SO...

  • NOT GREEK.

  • >> WITH NO OTHER OUTLET FOR THEIR TALENTS, THESE ACTORS ARE

  • GIVING AT-HOME PERFORMANCES THE "NEW YORK TIMES" CALLS A
