CBSN Originals | Ghost Light: The Year Broadway Went Dark

“From the ushers and stagehands to conductors, writers and actors, the Broadway community spent more than a year without knowing when they’d be back to work. In the absence of a paycheck during the COVID-19 pandemic, many were forced to leave their apartments or New York City completely. With no outlet for their lifelong passion, many kept swinging between depression and hope. CBSN Originals’ documentary “Ghost Light: The Year Broadway Went Dark” takes an intimate look at the impact of this unprecedented time on the Broadway community, and how it feels to finally be back.
