NEW YORK CITY | Did the 23-inch snowstorm this weekend cause you a terrible inconvenience? It did briefly mess up the performance schedule this weekend for Jennifer Hudson and Cynthia Erivo of the Broadway revival THE COLOR PURPLE.
Yet see Erivo in that featured picture? She’s back singing. Why? She’s singing in top voice to escape from the winter druthers. Will you do the same as well?
Go see a Broadway show today. All Broadway shows are playing as scheduled, today, Sunday, January 24th.
Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League, stated, “‘The show must go on,’ especially for the large percentage of our audience who come in from out of town to see a Broadway show and we don’t want to disappoint them. As always, the safety and security of theatregoers and employees is everyone’s primary concern.”
For information about refunds and exchanges, theatergoers should contact their point-of-purchase.
