Broadway Shuts Down As Storm Whirls

NEW YORK (October 29, 2012)--Broadway's 40 theaters were dark Monday evening and producers chose to keep them closed Tuesday as well as Hurricane Sandy took aim at New York City.

The Broadway League on Monday afternoon extended the cancellations of such shows as "The Book of Mormon," ''Once" and "Mama Mia!" for another day, citing safety precautions and the suspension of the city's public transport system.

Charlotte St. Martin, head of the league, said she expects normal operations to resume Wednesday morning.

Refunds will be made available from the point of purchase.

Most Broadway shows were already dark on Monday night, but the loss of Tuesday's revenue will hurt.

It was the most disruptive storm for the theater community since Hurricane Irene in 2011 prompted cancellations of weekend matinee and evening performances.
