The Broadway revival of American Buffalo , performed at the in-the-round Circle in the Square Theatre, will continue to require audience masking through July 10, the production’s closing date.

The policy will then be reviewed on a month-by-month basis. American Buffalo is the first production to announce that it would maintain … [Read more...] about Broadway’s ‘American Buffalo’ Will Require Audience Masking Until July 10 Closing

The contents of his notebook, which authorities found near his remains in a Florida swamp last October — and which the FBI announced in January included a confession — have been shared by the Laundrie family attorney, according to NBC News New York .
