Looks like Broadway's going to be putting up one hell of a fight against Hurricane Irene!
As the storm works its way up the eastern seaboard, many events, like the New York International Fringe Festival, have canceled their Saturday and Sunday dates, but according to The Broadway League, all shows scheduled to play this weekend will go on, as well as the Off-Broadway productions!
You'd think if they're shutting the subway down, and telling people to be ready to evacuate, Broadway would have some sense and give their actors the weekend off! We can't imagine anyone trying to go outside in this weather, let alone hit up the theater for a matinee!
See, guys?! This is what happens when you laugh at a Hurricane's name - it shows up bigger and badder than ever, and with one big, 125mph bug up its ass!
East Coasters - stay safe!
We're thinking of you!
