Broadway #Blackout. Some Cast Members Take To The Streets

A power outage in midtown shuttered more than two dozen Broadway shows. The casts of some of them took to the streets — See below Hadestown, Hamilton, Come From Away, Waitress… and Carnegie Hall. Only in New York.

Meanwhile: “Con Edison said that the power failed at 6:47 p.m. and that 73,000 customers were in the dark for at least two hours, mainly on the West Side. The Fire Department said the failures stretched from 72nd Street to the West 40s, and from Fifth Avenue to the Hudson River.”

All power is now reportedly restored as of midnight, and all Broadway shows plan to go on Sunday as scheduled.
