Last year, New York City’s Broadway theaters went dark by order of Governor Andrew Cuomo. On March 12, the order went into effect, allowing theaters to reopen and performances to resume the week of April 13 — However, this did not turn out to be the case.
Here we are, nearly one year later, and Broadway performances are still on hold due to the ongoing pandemic.
But as we continue to move forward amid the pandemic, Michael James Scott, who many may know as The Genie from Aladdin on Broadway, has just shared some incredible news!
On March 20 and 21, Michael James Scott will join his Broadway family in Orlando, Florida for a “full circle moment” and putting on a performance that he describes as the “only thing of its kind happening”.
Scott writes on Instagram:
