While the lights on Broadway went dark on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday evenings, all Broadway plays will return to their normal performance schedule Thursday.

Most Broadway shows will play their evening performances Wednesday with the exception of "Evita," "The Lion King," "Mary Poppins" and "Scandalous."

The Broadway League says theatergoers who have tickets for the canceled shows or had tickets for shows that were scheduled to play earlier this week must contact their point of purchase to get an answer for an exchange or refund.

In addition, some shows are offering "Hurricane Sandy" discounts. "Cyrano" and "The Mystery Of Edwin Drood" are selling $20 tickets for performances for Wednesday night for anyone with an MTA MetroCard.

The new Broadway show "The Performers" is offering tickets for $29.50 for performances for Wednesday night and Thursday.

"Nice Work If You Can Get It" is offering $37 tickets from Wednesday through Friday to anyone who lives in a state that was affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Regarding the off-Broadway scene, like many New Yorkers, some theaters downtown are still without power.

All performances scheduled to take place at The Public Theater and Joe's Pub are canceled until further notice.

The Vineyard Theater in Union Square has canceled its production of "Checkers" until its power is restored.

The theater scene is by far one of the most lucrative of tourist attractions, bringing in on average more than a billion dollars a year.
