Matinee and Evening Broadway Shows Canceled for Saturday

As a result of the ban on travel in New York and suspension of public transportation by government authorities and additional safety precautions implemented due to severe weather, all Broadway matinee and evening performances on Jan. 23 have been canceled.

Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, stated, "Now that the snowstorm has arrived, I’d like to reiterate that the safety and security of theatregoers and employees is everyone's primary concern. As a result of the ban on travel in New York and the suspension of public transportation by government authorities and other safety precautions implemented on behalf of the weather, matinee and evening performances will be canceled today, January 23rd. We expect normal operations to resume for tomorrow’s Sunday matinees." For information about refunds and exchanges, theatregoers should contact their point-of-purchase.
