News   Goodnight, Irene! Broadway's Back Aug. 29; Curtain Will Rise on All Shows With Monday Schedule
Only a handful of Broadway shows are regularly scheduled to play on Mondays, but the six that do are ready to light the lights on Aug. 29 following two days that saw Broadway fall dark due to Hurricane Irene hitting the city.

On Friday, Aug. 26, with Irene predicted to make a direct hit on New York City, members of The Broadway League made the decision to cancel all performances Aug. 27-28, owing to the fact that mass transit was being suspended by the city starting noon Saturday, Aug. 27.

No power outages, flooding or wind damage to Broadway theatres have been reported.

There are 23 attractions playing on Broadway at the moment. Broadway's traditional Tuesday-Sunday scheduled will be up and running as usual starting Aug. 30.

Here are the six Broadway shows that will perform Aug. 29:

Chicago, 8 PM at the Ambassador Theatre
Hair, 7 PM at the St. James Theatre
Mamma Mia!, 8 PM at the Winter Garden
The Phantom of the Opera, 8 PM at the Majestic Theatre
Priscilla Queen of the Desert, 8 PM at the Palace Theatre
Rock of Ages, 8 PM at the Helen Hayes Theatre Since mass transit resumed on Aug. 29, it's likely that Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway shows (as well as concerts and cabaret shows) that are scheduled for Monday are also still going forward, but check with point of purchase to make sure.
