Russian economy poised to crash as sanctions take their toll

The Russian economy is poised to collapse this year after the U.S. and its European allies hit the Kremlin with a slew of crippling financial penalties over its unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. 

Russian manufacturing activity plunged in March, contracting at the sharpest pace since May 2020 as businesses confronted a sharp rise in prices and a big decline in new orders. Western sanctions have effectively isolated Russia from the international financial system and prevented it from accessing new technology.

Broadway theaters extend mask mandate through May 31

The owners and operators of New York City's 41 Broadway theaters will extend a mask mandate for audiences through at least May 31. 

"Since resuming performances last fall, over five million attendees have seen a Broadway show, and the safety and security of our cast, crew and audience has been our top priority," Broadway League President Charlotte St. Martin said in a statement. "Our intention is that by maintaining strict audience masking through at least the month of May, we will continue that track record of safety for all."

While the Broadway League urges audience members to get vaccinated, they noted that many theaters will no longer require proof of vaccination after April 30. Customers should consult each show's website or point of purchase for information about proof of vaccination requirements.
