The move plunges into darkness one of the city's most popular tourist attractions and causes turmoil in the run-up to the Tony Awards. Shows will resume April 13.

The pressure on Broadway to go dark steadily increased as other entertainment hubs shuttered, including Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera, the NBA, NHL, CinemaCon, Coachella and Major League Soccer.
