Show Must Go On For Broadway Stars After Bomb Scare
Broadway bosses are forging ahead with all scheduled theatre performances following a bomb scare in New York City on Saturday (01May10).
Times Square was shut down on Saturday night after police found a bomb that began to detonate, but did not explode, in a car parked on West 45th Street, home to hit musicals including Billy Elliot and The Lion King.
Evening performances for plays including God of Carnage, Red, Lend Me a Tenor and A Behanding in Spokane were delayed for approximately 30 minutes.
However, Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, insists "all Broadway matinee and evening shows will go on as scheduled on Sunday" despite the bomb scare, adding, "There were no evacuations from Broadway theatres."
