Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin Hopes for January Reopening—with Full Theaters and Masks

Charlotte St. Martin, the president of the Broadway League, makes clear she does not “have a crystal ball.” But her personal belief is that Broadway will reopen in January 2021, she reveals in an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast.

For St. Martin, Broadway’s post-pandemic reopening means safety protocols being in place to ensure audience members can sit next to each other as they did before, likely—at least in the first phase of reopening—wearing masks, with actors, singers, and dancers able to perform in the same numbers and proximity, and with the same energy, as before.

“We know that we cannot socially distance within theaters with the present financial models we have,” St. Martin said. 

Most of the “cautiously optimistic” members of the Broadway League—the national trade association for the Broadway industry, created in 1930—believe the reopening date to be the end of this year, “and some believe not till spring 2021,” she said.

Broadway’s closure was first announced, effective immediately, on March 12. In May, the closure was officially extended. The League said that all Broadway tickets could be either refunded or exchanged for all shows leading up to Sept. 6. St. Martin said this date had been chosen with summer “as a big travel time” in mind. The League wanted to give people “enough notice to make other plans.” Now, Broadway will likely remain closed through the fall and early part of winter.

“I actually am a little more optimistic than those who say Broadway will reopen in the spring, but I tend to be an optimistic person,” said St. Martin. “I tend to think it will be after the first of the year, in January, just because of the massive number of people who come to New York City around the holidays.” 

This year, she doesn’t think a Broadway that reopened before Christmas would have had enough time to acclimatize to handle the possible Christmas crowds “as things get back to normal. You can barely walk through a theater door in November or December. If Broadway was open and tourism was back, we’d be testing social distancing pretty heavily and dramatically, and we have so many phases to get through before then.”

“We are at the mercy of statistics and medical information the government delivers every day,” St. Martin said. The difference of predictions around reopening depended on “where you are in the health and science area,” she said. “The Spring people believe that’s when a vaccine will be available—that’s when Broadway will reopen. But every day there is new information, like news of vaccines being developed earlier.”

The League’s 700-plus members include theater owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers in North American cities, as well as suppliers of goods and services to the commercial theater industry.

The impact of COVID-19 on Broadway has been measured in the closures of high-profile shows like Frozen, and the very personal stories of figures like actor Nick Cordero and leading designer Edward Pierce.

Senate Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) wrote a letter to US Attorney General William Barr on Monday requesting he declassify the remaining portion of Susan Rice’s January 20, 2017 email to herself about the secret Oval Office meeting with the coup cabal.

“I request you review and declassify the remaining portion of Ambassador Rice’s January 20, 2017, email and provide it to my office,” Johnson wrote.

Acting DNI Richard Grenell on Tuesday declassified the remaining portion of Susan Rice’s email.

It was previously known the junk Russia dossier and General Flynn’s calls to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were discussed in the secret meeting.

The newly declassified portion of the email once again implicates Barack Obama and Comey!

Barack Obama and Comey discussed Flynn’s communications with Kislyak.

Comey suggested to Obama in the meeting that the National Security Council [NSC] might not want to pass “sensitive information related to Russia” to then-incoming National Security Adviser General Mike Flynn.

“President Obama asked if Comey was saying that the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to Flynn. Comey replied “potentially” and noted “the level of communication (w/Russian Ambassador) is unusual.”

Tom Fitton said a special counsel should be appointed to investigate the seditious conspiracy.

Kobe Bryant and daughter Gianna died instantly in January helicopter crash, says autopsy report — RT Sport News

Basketball icon Kobe Bryant along with eight others died upon impact when the helicopter they were traveling in crashed into a Los Angeles hillside in January, according to the official inquest into the fatal accident.

The autopsy report conducted by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office also confirmed that the pilot had no drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of the crash, but goes into grim detail in its determination of blunt force trauma for the loss of all nine souls. 

Bryant, the world famous sports star, could only be identified by fingerprints after his body was found. His remains were found in dirt surrounding the wreckage of the helicopter.

These injuries are rapidly if not instantly fatal,” senior deputy medical examiner Juan Carrillo wrote. 

The report also details that Bryant’s teenage daughter Gianna was wearing the jersey of the basketball team she represented, with the word ‘Mamba’ emblazoned across the front and her last name on the back. Los Angeles Lakers’ legend Bryant, who was 41 at the time of his death, was affectionately known as the ‘Black Mamba’ throughout his playing career. 

Alyssa Altobelli, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Sarah Chester, Payton Chester, Christina Mauser all died alongside the two members of the Bryant family and the pilot.

Investigations into the crash determined that pilot Ara Zobayan encountered thick fog in the San Fernando Valley. He climbed sharply to escape from it, but the aircraft swung to the left and he lost control. The helicopter then plunged into the woodland below.

Obama CIA Chief John Brennan Under Fire for the Creation of Bogus January 2017 Intel Report Claiming Russia Wanted Trump to Win 2016 Election

John Brennan under the spotlight!

In January 2017, the US Intelligence community released a report, at former President Barack Obama’s request a couple weeks prior, to determine Russia’s influence into the 2016 election.  A bogus report was created and it is reportedly under review curently by John Durham, the US Attorney selected by AG Barr to look into government actions surrounding the 2016 election and the Trump-Russia collusion lie.

Ed Henry from FOX News reported tonight that Brennan is under the spotlight:

TRENDING: Tucker Carlson Confronts Former Rep. Trey Gowdy for Actions He and Former Speaker Paul Ryan Took that Allowed Mueller and Obamagate to Flourish (VIDEO)

John Brennan and the Obama Intel communities released a report on January 6, 2017, per the request of former President Barack Obama a couple weeks prior, to perform a study on Russian influence in the 2016 Presidential election.  The report drafted at light speed, was produced in only a couple of weeks and it stated in its summary, in part:

We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. We have high confidence in these judgments.

We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him. All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence.

But by February 2017 the Intel report was already being torn apart as even the fake news New York Times reported that the number of Intel agencies to sign off on the report was actually 4, not 17:

A few months later, the Republican run US Senate released a bogus report confirming the assessments of the January 2017 Intel report.  Then a few months ago, in April 2020, the Republican led US Senate provided more cover for the bogus report from the Intel community from nearly four years prior and released a report that they agreed with the findings of the report that the 17 agencies produced long ago.  The fake news New York Times reported:

For years, President Trump has derided the assessment by American intelligence officials that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to assist his candidacy, dismissing it without evidence as the work of a “deep state” out to undermine his victory.

But on Tuesday, a long-awaited Senate review led by members of Mr. Trump’s own party effectively undercut those allegations. A three-year review by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee unanimously found that the intelligence community assessment, pinning blame on Russia and outlining its goals to undercut American democracy, was fundamentally sound and untainted by politics.

“The I.C.A. reflects strong tradecraft, sound analytical reasoning and proper justification of disagreement in the one analytical line where it occurred,” said Senator Richard M. Burr, Republican of North Carolina and the panel’s chairman. “The committee found no reason to dispute the intelligence community’s conclusions.”

Of course the entire report is bogus as we reported previously.  The entire report is based on bogus charges against a Russian company that were dropped months ago.

Let’s hope the rumors are true and lying John Brennan is brought to justice for the many lies and the massive destruction he forced America to endure during his Obama years and since.

Antibody tests show Ohio had first Covid-19 cases as early as JANUARY – state health director — RT USA News

There were at least five coronavirus infections in Ohio as far back as January, the state’s health director said, suggesting the illness began spreading there weeks earlier than previously thought.

The five early cases – believed to have emerged across five Ohio counties between January 7 and 27 – were announced on Monday by Department of Health Director Dr Amy Acton, who said the previously unknown infections were picked up amid ramped up antibody testing.

“We actually have a new date of onset. We have found five cases now when the date of onset of symptoms was in January,” Acton told a statehouse press conference. “We are doing a lot more investigation, our disease detectives are going back to take a look at that and see if they were associated with travel.”

These cases now, we can pick them up because of the antibody testing. We are going to learn more and more about this disease, how long it was here in Ohio, how long it was spreading.

‘Humans are not herds’: WHO thrashes ‘brutal arithmetic’ of herd immunity to beat Covid-19 pandemic



Ohio announced its first three confirmed cases of Covid-19 on March 10, and previously estimated the earliest onset date – when the infection actually took place – around early February, suggesting the virus had started spreading in the state a full month earlier than was known before. As state health officials continue to expand antibody tests, the date could be pushed back even further.

The five residents are considered “probable” cases due to the presence of antibodies in their systems – which are part of the body’s immune response – however a health department spokesperson said they can never be definitively confirmed as they never received a test while their infections were active. It remains unclear how each may have contracted the virus, but two of the patients say they traveled out of state around the time in question.

Ohio has tallied just shy of 25,000 cases and some 1,357 fatalities throughout the coronavirus pandemic, accounting for a fraction of the US’ total disease toll of 1.3 million and over 80,000 deaths. Though the state continues to see new infections, it is moving ahead on plans to lift sweeping lockdown measures imposed to stem the spread of the illness, with retail stores set to reopen on Tuesday and a number of other sectors following in the coming days.

Why Did Barack Obama Know About Flynn’s Calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak in Early January 2017?

Barack Obama, Joe Biden, James Comey, Sally Yates, Susan Rice and John Brennan discussed General Flynn’s phone calls with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a January 5 2017 secret Oval Office meeting.

On January 5th, 2017, then-FBI Director James Comey held a secret meeting in the Oval Office before he traveled to Trump Tower New York to brief president-elect Donald Trump on the Hillary-funded junk Russia dossier.

It was previously known the junk Russia dossier was discussed, but now we know they were also discussing General Flynn’s calls to Kislyak — A NON-CRIME!

According to newly declassified documents, then-Deputy AG Sally Yates said she first learned of the December 2016 calls between Flynn and Kislyak from Barack Obama in the January 5, 2017 Oval Office meeting.

TRENDING: Breaking: Department of Justice Drops Case Against General Michael Flynn

Obama dismissed part of the group and told Yates, Biden, Rice, and Comey to stick around for a follow-up conversation in the Oval Office.

According to Yates, Obama started by saying he had “learned of the information about Flynn” and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions.

Why did Sally Yates learn about Flynn’s calls with Kislyak from Obama?

According to the document, Yates “was so surprised by the information she was hearing, she was having a hard time processing it and listening to the conversation at the same time.”

Why did Obama know this information? Washington Post reporter David Ignatius didn’t publish the story about Flynn’s communications with Kislyak until January 12, a full week after the secret Oval Office meeting.

On Thursday, the DOJ said the investigation of Flynn was based “solely on his calls with Kislyak.” It sure looks like Obama orchestrated the Flynn-Kislyak-Logan Act investigation!

WATCH:

The FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into General Flynn in August of 2016 dubbed “Crossfire Razor” over his ties to ‘various state-affiliated entities of the Russian Federation.’

Another reason why a full CI investigation was opened into Flynn? Because he was a foreign policy advisor to Trump.

Flynn was being spied on and Barack Obama, the micromanager, knew about it and was involved in sabotaging Trump’s transition team!

Healed’s Plasma Defeated Covid-19. Italian Hospitals’ Therapy in 116 Us University. Tom Hanks Donor to UCLA – Veterans Today

by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio for VT Italy

Experimented in the Italian Lombard hospitals of Pavia and Mantua, also landed in Padua, now it is traveling around the world the therapy against Sars-Cov-2 infection that does not use drugs. Thanks to the creative intuition of Italian doctors, in fact, was developed a treatment protocol based on the plasma of the healed patients who produced the antibodies against Covid-19.

The blood rich in specific immune defenses is transfused into the veins of infected patients, which thus reacts to the virus by fighting it. The results obtained within 12/48 hours from the injection bode well, but the most relevant data is that on the deaths: zero in these hospitals since the therapy began.

It has been successfully tested by Professor Cesare Perotti, director of the Immunohematology and Transfusion Medicine service of the Saint Mattew Pavia health center, together with colleague Giuseppe De Donno of Mantua, but from there it has spread to other Italian hospitals and over one hundred universities in the USA, the country most affected from this new and mysterious strain of CoronaVirus with over one million infected and more than 67 thousand dead.

WUHANGATE – 4. “Covid-19 manipulated, CHINA-US Hidden Affair”. Class-Action for Bio-Weapon in Texas

Also actor Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, after being cured by Covid-19, donated their plasma to the University of California of Los Angeles which in addition to working on the search for a vaccine is carrying out UCLA COVID-19 Convalescent Serum Project to use blood with antibodies in the treatment of infected patients. While 250 people in Pavia alone are inclined to make a donation for the most immediate transfusion.

«The convalescent patients responded enthusiastically. But not all donors are eligible. The first patients who contracted the disease no longer have the neutralizing antibodies that serve to defeat the virus».

So Professor Perotti revealed to the microphones of “Il Giorno” what could happen in the coming weeks. The 120 bags collected at St. Matthew were placed in 52 patients with excellent results. «Patients enrolled for the investigation are doing well. Now we will close the trial and hope to publish the results very soon. Then we will work on another trial, expanding the number of patients to enroll».

The Lombard doctors Cesare Perotti (Saint Matthew of Pavia) and Giuseppe De Donno (Poma of Mantua) who first started the experiments with the plasma of the healed

«In many cases it allows patients to avoid resuscitation and knowing how hard it is, this is already an incredible milestone against the damned Covid». The president of the Lombardy region Attilio Fontana said on Facebook about the anti-Covid cure with plasma developed by St. Matthew hospital.

 

EXPERIMENTATION EVEN IN THE USA

«A protocol – explains Fontana – prepared by the Immunohematology and Transfusion Medicine service of St. Matthew, in collaboration with the structures of Mantua and Lodi, as well as by the University Hospital of Padua. Developed in Lombardy and already exported to the United States, where it is being applied in 116 university centers».

«The cure is developed in conjunction with the serological test, also from St. Matthew of Pavia, which, in addition to telling you if you have or not have antibodies, analyzes the quantity present in your blood, defining if you can become a donor of the precious Plasma with a high presence of antibodies. Lombardy works on this. Concrete answers» concludes Fontana.

Governor of Lombardy Attilio Fontana

«We prepare to be ready to leave if and when the pilot clinical studies launched in Lombardy and Veneto confirm the effectiveness of this particular therapy» says Cinzia Vecchiato director of the Immunohematology and Transfusion Service of the hospital in Bolzano, Trentino.

«There are many voluntary donors who present themselves or call the Immunohematology and Transfusion Center to donate blood or plasma. Particularly valuable in recent months is the plasma of those who have recovered for coronavirus infection: it can in fact contain a sufficient and specific quantity of antibodies capable of blocking the virus. The next step is to inject this plasma to the most serious patients» added the doctor.

WUHANGATE – 3. “COVID-19 Created in Lab with HIV”. Medicine Nobel confirms Indian Research disclosed by Gospa News

A Chinese study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, described a study treating five critically ill COVID-19 patients with convalescent plasma. All five patients, ranging from 36 to 65 years old, began the study while on ventilators.

Following the transfusion, the authors reported, four of the five patients’ body temperatures normalized within three days. Other key metrics, including viral loads, improved within 12 days.

COVID-19 convalescent plasma therapy is considered as an investigational product by the Food and Drug Administration.  Dr. Jamie N. Nadler, the medical director of quality and patient safety for Buffalo General Medical Center and Gates Vascular Institute in upstate New York, recently told the Buffalo News that there’s some evidence that it could be an effective way to treat COVID-19.

«There have been small trials and small attempts around the world that seem to have had some degree of success. So it’s worth trying as long as it’s done correctly» Nadler said according to american website PolitiFact by Poynter Institute in Florida.

PREGNANT WOMAN IN MANTUA IN THE SIGHT OF THE CARABINIERI

Now there is only one enemy left to fight against: the power of Big Pharma who have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in research on vaccines, thanks to the generous donations of Bill Gates through the various entities with which his foundation is a partner despite himself being in business with drug corporations in a blatant conflict of interest.

It is clear that if plasma therapy proves miraculous, as it seems, vaccines and antivirals such as Remdesivir, already authorized by the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) and recently approved by the American Federal Drug Association (FDA), would be useless, given the always high risk of side effects, and would end up in the garbage.
