NJ theaters and arts venues hope to rebound with federal aid

More than a year into this pandemic, theaters and stages remain dark across the state. Countless venues lost millions in revenue,  laid off the bulk of their staff and struggled to keep lights on by way of virtual performances and events. This week, they were offered a lifeline of sorts, new legislation signed by the governor, making them eligible for a pot of federal relief aid. They’re hoping it’ll be enough to rebuild after the crush of the public health crisis.
