So, who were all those theatregoers standing on 43rd Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues around 4 PM ET on Sunday, Aug. 30?

Turns out, the matinee performance of The Marvelous Wonderettes was halted midway through. Several theatregoers told Playbill.com that they smelled smoke in the theatre. Fire trucks were dispatched, and the theatre was evacuated.

The performance was eventually canceled, although all theatregoers were told they could receive a full refund for the performance.

A spokesperson for the musical told Playbill.com that it was an electrical fire that took place during the first act. Nobody was injured, and performances will resume Monday evening, Aug. 31.

The acclaimed Marvelous Wonderettes plays the Westside Theatre.
