New York City continues to assess storm damage in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and subways may not be operational for a few days yet, but Broadway is returning on Wednesday, October 31. Not every Broadway show will be playing (Disney's The Lion King and Mary Poppins are notable exceptions), but the majority will be resuming performances for the first time since the weekend. For a complete list of which Broadway shows will go on October 31 (Note that some Broadway shows are canceling their matinee performances but still doing evening shows).

Transportation difficulties into and within New York City might still make it impossible for some Broadway ticket holders to attend their shows, so they should contact their point of purchase to find out about ticket refund and exchange possibilities. But despite transit woes for many, the Broadway League's Charlotte St. Martin noted that "For those theatregoers who are staying in hotels and can't get home, it's a great time to see a show."
