Isabelle Krugman started this petition to Governor Andrew Cuomo

I am a 17 year old high school student from New York City who loves Broadway! I believe that Broadway is the heart of New York and I want to see it come back stronger than ever when New York re-opens after the COVID-19 crisis.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has created the New York Forward Re-Opening Advisory Board whose mission is to "...help guide the state’s re-opening strategy. The advisory board will be chaired by former secretaries to the Governor Steve Cohen and Bill Mulrow and includes over 100 business, community and civic leaders from industries across the state."

While the board includes leaders from a wide range of industries it does not include a single person from the Broadway community. Broadway belongs on the governor's advisory board!

In the 2017-18 season alone, Broadway shows in New York had gross revenue of $1.7 billion. Broadway brings jobs, revenue and joy to New York. It is the heart of New York and it must succeed in order for New York to succeed. New York would not be the same without Broadway.

I am asking Governor Cuomo to give Broadway the representation that it deserves. Please sign my petition to ask the governor to appoint a Broadway representative to the New York Forward Re-Opening Advisory Board. Broadway Belongs! #BroadwayBelongs
