Broadway shut down because of Sandy

Shows will resume on Wednesday

Executive director of The Broadway League says now a good time for a show

(EW.com) —  

Broadway’s been dark since Sunday in response to Hurricane Sandy, but New York’s famous theater district will resume matinee and evening performances on Wednesday, Oct. 31, The Broadway League announced Tuesday.

“Most shows will go on as scheduled for both the matinee and evening performances on Wednesday, October 31st. For those theatregoers who are staying in hotels and can’t get home, it’s a great time to see a show. As always, the safety and security of theatregoers and employees is everyone’s primary concern, so for those who can’t get in to the city as a result of the suspension of public transportation by government authorities or additional safety precautions that were implemented, they should contact their point of purchase for questions about exchange or refund policies,” Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League, said in a press release.
