Ricky Martin’s ‘Evita’ Back on Broadway After Superstorm Forces Postponement

Ricky Martin’s hot musical “Evita” is up and running again after having to shut down due to hurricane Sandy, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The entertainment publication is reporting that the Broadway League released a statement on Tuesday evening detailing that “Evita,” along with “Jersey Boys” and “Scandalous,” will resume their evening shows but have canceled their matinee performances.

"As always, the safety and security of theatregoers and employees is everyone's primary concern," said Charlotte St. Martin, Broadway League executive director, in the statement.

"For those who can’t get in to the city as a result of the suspension of public transportation by government authorities or additional safety precautions that were implemented, they should contact their point of purchase for questions about exchange or refund policies."

Seems like Martin did not mind returning to work, as the actor told his fans on Tuesday night he cannot take being indoors any longer.

“Cabin fever in full effect,” wrote the singer/actor on his Twitter page on Tuesday. “We had to make a decision. Going for a walk.”

Other productions such as “Annie,” “The Book of Mormon,” “The Phantom of the Opera” “War Horse” and “Once” are all back on their normal schedules.

Veteran Broadway show “The Lion King” and “Mary Poppins” will open their doors to the public again on Wednesday night, with “Spider-Man” Turn Off the Dark and “Newsies” starting up again on Thursday.

The situation with off-Broadway shows is still uncertain.

Hurricane Sandy, or Frankenstorm, as she was nicknamed, forced all 40 Broadway theaters to close.

The thriving downtown off-Broadway community was still assessing the damage and likely facing a longer time off. The superstorm forced the well-respected Vineyard Theatre in Union Square to cancel performances of its world-premiere production of "Checkers," which was to open Wednesday.

And the staff of the SoHo Rep, just a few blocks south of Canal Street, was dealing with no power and some flooding in the basement, on a day that was supposed to be the first technical rehearsal of a play about African genocide by Jackie Sibblies Drury.

"You obviously can't do tech without electricity," said artistic director Sarah Benson, who added that the tight-knit community was helping each other.

"I've already been in contact with other theaters who are offering help and the community is pulling together," she said. "Everyone is going to support one another as best we can."

Two Broadway shows were even offering a special discount — if you could walk to their theaters. Tickets to the Roundabout Theatre Company's productions of both "Cyrano de Bergerac" and "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" were going for $20 for Wednesday's matinee and evening shows to customers who show their MetroCards, made useless by the storm.

Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center canceled performances and the Metropolitan Opera and Radio City Music Hall were also closed.

The 57th Street entrance to Carnegie Hall — which also canceled Wednesday concerts — was blocked by a street closure because of a dangling crane. The Metropolitan Opera said Tuesday that it planned to go ahead with its Wednesday evening performance of Thomas Ades' "The Tempest."

The Apollo Theater was forced to postpone its signature show, the Amateur Night finale, from Wednesday night to Nov. 14. Apollo president and CEO Jonelle Procope said finalists weren't able to travel to the event.

The financial hit for touring musicians will depend in part on how long it takes transit and other infrastructure to return to normal, said Gary Bongiovanni of Pollstar, the trade publication that tracks the concert industry. Atlantic City, where a lot of acts perform, was particularly hard hit. New York concert cancellations included those for Journey at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn and a Beacon Theater benefit concert for marriage equality that was to feature Rufus Wainwright, the National and They Might Be Giants.

"Everyone knows there is no shows in New York tonight, but what about Wednesday or Thursday ... when do you make the decision to try and drop things and rearrange your schedules?" he said. "Financially, everyone is taking a hit on this thing, and you make the best of it like any other natural disaster."
