NEW YORK, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Numerous Off-Broadway productions in lower Manhattan are to reopen as power is restored after Hurricane Sandy, theater officials said Friday.

"Checkers," "Don't Go Gentle," "Falling," "Fuerza Bruta," "Giant," "The Golden Land," "The Other Josh Cohen," "Sorry," "Stomp," "A Summer Day," "The Twenty-Seventh Man" and "Wild with Happy" will resume performances, pending resumption of services by Con Edison, which has begun downtown.

To celebrate their return, the shows' producers announced they are offering theater-goers tickets through Nov. 11 for $20. The Off-Off-Broadway show "Through the Yellow Hour" will offer tickets for $15.

Theater-goers should check with participating theaters for schedule and availability.

"Off-Broadway theaters in Lower Manhattan have long demonstrated their survival skills, as evidenced after 9-11 and once again, they are bouncing back," George Forbes, executive director of the Lucille Lortel Foundation, said in a statement Friday. "We hope everyone will take advantage of this generous offer, and support the theaters that continue to be dramatically impacted by circumstances far beyond their control."
