NEW YORK — Broadway theaters have been dark since March 12. However, some of the industry’s workers have found ways to keep busy.

Out-of-work Broadway costumers and dozens of volunteers, including a former Radio City Rockette, have begun sewing facemasks to donate to New York domestic violence and homeless shelters.
