Of course, these dates remain tentative as the battle with Covid-19 continues. Broadway in Cincinnati cautions that there could be unforeseen scheduling changes if any productions need to be rescheduled or canceled. It also emphasizes that its priority is the health and well-being of artists, crew, staff and audiences; the presenter and Cincinnati Arts Association are working with local and state health authorities on a health and safety plan that follows local, state, and federal guidelines to responsibly welcome the public to performances.
