The Public Theater has canceled all performances for the evening of Nov. 2, as well as the Nov. 3 matinee of the new musical Fun Home. The company has not determined whether matinee performances of Giant, Wild With Happy and Sorry will proceed on Saturday or not.

The Public is among many New York theatres still without power since Hurricane Sandy struck earlier in the week. Nov. 2 marks the fourth day of performances that the Public has had to cancel its shows. All performances at Joe's Pub are also canceled.

The sold-out run of Fun Home, which has a score by Jeanine Tesori and a book by Lisa Kron, was scheduled to conclude Nov. 4. It has not been announced if the Public will attempt to resume or extend the run. 

As previously reported, Richard Nelson's U.S. Election Day-set drama Sorry, which was to open on Nov. 6 (Election Night), is still on track to open as scheduled. The drama unfolds in real-time during election night. Previews were to begin Oct. 30, but all performances thus far have been canceled.



The Public Theater is also presenting Giant, the new musical featuring a score by Michael John LaChiusa and a book by Sybille Pearson; and Wild With Happy, the latest play from Tony Award-nominated actor-playwright Colman Domingo.
