News   Broadway Shows Will Go On Despite Blizzard
 
Despite the snowstorm that blanketed the New York metropolitan area, all Broadway shows that are scheduled to perform Monday, Dec. 27 will do so.

A statement from Paul Libin, chairman, The Broadway League and executive vice president, Jujamcyn Theaters, reads: "The weather outside is frightful, but the Broadway shows inside are delightful!

"As of now, the Great White Way is open for business and all Broadway shows will perform today as previously scheduled. Whether you live in New York or are a visitor stranded in our city, it's a wonderful time to see a show! Tickets to hit shows will be available due to cancellations from the cold winter storm.

"Please check individual show information for holiday schedules and curtain times. For information about refunds or exchanges, theatregoers should contact their point of purchase.

Tonight is a great night to sit in a warm Broadway theatre and see one of Broadway's great shows!"
