The show must go on – power outage or not. That’s why a lot of entertainers took to the streets during Saturday night’s blackoutin New York City.
Power outages struck Times Square and the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
The casts of the“Waitress,” “Come From Away,” and the Tony Award-winning Best Musical “Hadestown” were among those to greet the dispersing audiences on the Great White Way and perform stripped-down renditions of their musical’s songs.
Andre DeShields of “Hadestown” improvised a song about the blackout before performing the musical’s “Road to Hell.”
The biggest crowd gathered outside Carnegie Hall where the Millennial Choirs and Orchestra held an impromptu performance outside the venue after their concert was canceled by the blackout.
