Currently in the theatre district, and it looks like over half of the area is without power tonight around 7:30pm. Im curious to see if any shows will cancel or just postpone if the power doesnt return.

They may be able to finally perform a show and not get giddy for a change x

Seems like most Broadway and Off-Broadway shows are affected right now.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

In line to pick up lotto tickets for Tootsie... we’ve been here for about twenty minutes and they are just trying to keep the crowd informed. (And doing a great job!) Emergency lights are on but all the marquees around us are out. A little eerie.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but it would Equity’s call to make regarding cancellation, no? Or at least a factor?

To have this happen 30 minutes before curtain makes it tough for theaters. I doubt any wait past 8:30 before cancelling.

For sure. If shows run past 11pm, they owe everyone overtime pay, which is insanely expensive. I think a lot of decisions will be made in the next 15 minutes.
