AKB48 Group Theater resume operations
With the lifting of restrictions due to the Corona crisis, the AKB48 Group Theaters have decided to resume operations. For the time being, the performances are still presented without an audience. The AKB48 Theater will be the first theater to open on 1 June 2020. In addition to the theater performances, the OUC48 performances will continue to be produced, since many AKB48 members and fans are still in the home office. AKB48 has launched a new YouTube channel where the theater performances as well as the OUC48 projects will be published. As second group, NMB48 has announced that their theater will restart on 8 June 2020 without an audience. NMB48 will broadcast the performances on NMB48 LIVE! ON DEMAND.
