Broadway's Back! Shows to Resume Tuesday Night: Here's What's Playing

News   Broadway's Back! Shows to Resume Tuesday Night: Here's What's Playing
 
With travel bans lifted and mass transit returning across New York City early Tuesday morning, The Broadway League announced that most Broadway shows would play as scheduled Jan. 27. Many Off-Broadway productions also plan to perform.

Forecasters predicted Winter Storm Juno would blanket parts of the metropolitan region in anywhere from 12 to 24 inches of snow, prompting several productions to preemptively cancel Tuesday evening performances. But by Tuesday morning, with less than eight inches of snow across the city, many New Yorkers were returning to work as subways were expected to resume limited "Sunday service" beginning at 9 AM.

Will the shows go on?

Broadway:

YES! Only two Broadway productions will not play as scheduled: Disney's Aladdin and The Lion King, which preemptively canceled Tuesday night performances in the face of high snowfall predictions and transit shut downs. Disney is offering complimentary ticket exchanges for performances through Wednesday, Jan. 28. For details on Disney production schedules, visit aladdinthemusical.com/weather and lionking.com/weather.

"Most shows will go on as scheduled tonight. For those 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 those who can't get in to the city 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 statement.
