The bright lights of Broadway go dark as New York City readies itself for the assault of Hurricane Sandy. New York City's famed "White Way" is on shut down as Hurricane Sandy descends on the eastern United States.
Broadway falls into the evacuation zone announced by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg over the weekend. Michael Bloomberg, New York City Mayor spoke to the press, "In light of these conditions, I am going to sign an executive order mandating evacuation of Zone A areas."
All Broadway shows for Sunday (October 28) were canceled, and those on Monday (October 29) have also been suspended. Radio City Music Hall announced that the box office and Stage Door Tour will also be shuttered as a public transportation shutdown holds in New York City.
Hurricane Sandy is a life threatening storm that forecasters are calling a rare, hybrid "super storm."
