As a result of the suspension of public transport due to severe weather resulting from Hurricane Sandy, all Broadway performances on Tuesday evening, October 30th have been cancelled.

All performances were cancelled for Sunday evening October 28th, and Monday October 29th. It's expected that shows will resume performances on Wednesday.

It was the most detrimental storm for the theatre community since the threat of Hurricane Irene in late August 2011, prompted producers to cancel matinee and evening performances on both a Saturday and Sunday.

New York City officials also said that all film permits for Monday and Tuesday were revoked because of the storm and associated safety precautions.

"There will be no city authorised outdoor filming within the five boroughs," read a statement Monday from the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting.

Production was affected on several TV shows, including Gossip Girl, Person of Interest, Smash, 666 Park Avenue and Elementary. The Daily Show and The Colbert Report also took Monday night off

The storm halted production on a few films as well, including Akiva Goldsman's Winter's Tale and Darren Aronofsky's Noah.

"I take it that the irony of a massive storm holding up the production of 'Noah' is not lost," tweeted actress Emma Watson.
