Looks like Broadway’s going on with the show…
Paul Libin, chairman of The Broaadway League, said today: “As of now, all Broadway shows in New York City for the coming weekend are playing as scheduled. For questions about exchange or refund policies, theatregoers should contact their point of purchase. We will update www.BroadwayLeague.com with any additional information.”
Libin went on to say: “Broadway is a community and we work together very closely on the safety and security of our theatregoers and employees. In all emergencies impacting safety, we coordinate our efforts with the New York City Office of Emergency Management.”
With the MTA announcing that it will suspend service, including Metro-North, beginning at noon on Saturday, it’s not entirely clear how theatergoers — and casts and crews, for that matter — are supposed to get to the shows.
