Broadway's coronavirus shutdown has an end in sight.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced comeback plans Thursday to set up vaccination sites for Broadway performers and theater workers to ensure shows can return to the city this fall.

1. What about restaurant workers?

DeBlasio says they can't get a shot unless they're already back to work. WTF?

2. If you're not working now, you're not a restaurant worker.

Restaurants are open. Anyone working in a restaurant is eligible for vaccination. Theaters have been closed for a year, so staff and freelancers have had no opportunity to work in the field.
