Winter storm Niko is underway in New York, and scheduled to drop up to 12 inches of snow on Manhattan February 9.

As of noon, the Broadway League is reporting that all Broadway shows will be going on for their Thursday performances. The League advises that ticket holders who wish to make an exchange should contact their point of purchase.

All four of New York’s TKTS discount ticket booths (Times Square, South Street Seaport, Downtown Brooklyn and the new indoor booth at Lincoln Center) will be open for their regular hours today. TKTS advises, “There are likely to be a lot of tickets available for tonight’s shows.”

Adhering to the showbiz adage that "The show must go on," Broadway shows rarely make weather-related cancellations unless the city government shuts down public transportation. The last time shows got canceled due to snow was the blizzard of Jan. 26, 2015.

The Off-Broadway musical Cagney is offering $25 “snow day rush” tickets for the 2 PM Feb. 9 matinee, only at the box office of the Westside Theatre (407 West 43rd Street, NY). Two tickets per person, cash only.

The Off-Broadway comedy Not That Jewish has a special “snow day offer” of $31 discounted tickets. Use code NJHPTX31 at the New World Stages box office, or at Telechargeoffers.com.
