Those of us on the East Coast are gearing up for Hurricane Sandy and its effects over the next few days, and in preparation for the storm, Disney Theatrical Productions has canceled several performances of its Broadway productions.
The October 28-29 performances of Newsies, Mary Poppins, and The Lion King will be officially canceled, Disney Theatricals announced this afternoon. The dates/times of the canceled performances are as follows:
Mary Poppins: October 28th at 6:30 PM (New Amsterdam Theater)
The Lion King: October 28th at 6:30 PM (Minskoff Theater)
Newsies: October 29th at 7:30 PM (Nederlander Theater)
Tickets for these cancelled performances will be refunded at the original point of purchase. Tickets purchased through Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster via Phone or the Disney on Broadway Hotline have already been processed, and customers can expect a refund within 7-10 business days. If any issues arise, contact the Disney on Broadway Hotline at (866) 870-2717 with your Ticketmaster Account Number/Confirmation Number handy. Those with group sales tickets should contact their Group Sales Agent, and customers who purchased tickets directly at the box office should return their tickets directly to the Minskoff, New Amsterdam or Nederlander Theater Box Office, where they can either exchange the tickets for a different performance or receive a full refund.
For everyone in Hurricane Sandy’s path tonight and over the next couple days, please stay safe!
