Probably all evening shows are going to cancel because public transportation will be down or going down. 9pm is even risky with the shows that start at 6:30.

Basic trend: All matinees today going forward.
All evening performances tonight and tomorrow canceled.

Since the MTA is shutting down subways, buses and commuter lines at 7 p.m., I think you need to make sure you can get home by then in order for it to make sense to go to a matinee.

When shows are cancelled like this, do they sometimes add a matinee later in the week or the next week to make up for it?

Now that Disney cancelled, I bet all the other shows will follow.

at least for Broadway's sake, this storm isn't occuring on a weekend like Irene did last year. we should only see tonight & Monday night's shows cancelled. The worst of the storm should been done with by mid-day Tuesday.

all shows for tonight & tomorrow have been cancelled. NJ Transit has announced it will begin a gradual suspension of service today and is expected to suspend service tomorrow. NJ Gov. Christie just said in his news conference that if you don't have to go out tomorrow, stay indoors at all times. You should only leave your house in an emergency situation only.

i would imagine if mass transit is still shut down in the morning, all shows Tuesday will be cancelled as well. still no decision on the transit system for tomorrow.

THE PERFORMERS is canceling tomorrow's (10/30) show...I'm thinking many others will follow suit at this point.

UPDATE: The Broadway League just tweeted that all Broadway performances for tonight (10/29) and tomorrow (10/30) are officially cancelled due to weather.

I'm hearing wednesday mats could also be cancelled depending on how long it takes for the subways to be inspected and get back up and running.

It looks like the benefit concert on Tuesday night at the Beacon Theater starring Rufus Wainwright and others has been removed from
