NEW YORK, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Most Broadway matinee and evening performances will resume Wednesday for the first time since superstorm Sandy battered New York, theater officials announced.

All plays and musicals on the Great White Way were canceled Sunday through Tuesday.

"Most shows will go on as scheduled for both the matinee and evening performances on Wednesday," Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said in a statement. "For those theatergoers who are staying in hotels and can't get home, it's a great time to see a show. As always, the safety and security of theatergoers and employees is everyone's primary concern, so 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."

The Broadway shows not playing Wednesday are "Evita," "The Lion King," "Mary Poppins," "Jersey Boys" and "Scandalous."
