Broadway isn't taking any chances with the superstorm on its way to New York and the East Coast. theater owners cancelled all Sunday evening and Monday shows before rain had even fallen on Times Square.
"The safety and security of theatregoers and employees is everyone's primary concern," said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League.
Public transportation service in New York was shut down on Sunday evening. Refunds will be made available from the point of purchase.
Off-Broadway shows including "Stomp," `'Bad Jews" and "Golden Child" were also canceled Sunday night. Most matinees on and off Broadway stayed open. Mondays are usually very light on Broadway, with most shows having that as their day off.
Some Broadway shows had no evening shows scheduled Sunday, including "Cyrano de Bergerac," `'Chaplin," `'Enemy of the People," `'Once," `'Jersey Boys" and "Nice Work If You Can Get It."
