HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Should be fine. Nothing to see here.
After a sold-out first preview performance last evening, producers Hal Luftig and Scott Sanders have just announced the cancellation of the second preview of the new production of EVITA.
The deluge system went off at the Marquis Theatre (1535 Broadway) and clean up is underway. The deluge system is a large reservoir of water stored above the stage which, when released in case of fire, will flood the stage in an attempt to extinguish any flames. There was no fire at the theatre. Preview performances are expected to resume tomorrow, March 14, 2012 at 2pm. For patrons with tickets to tonight’s preview performance, please return to point-of-purchase for refund or exchange.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security, initially created by Presidential Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1978 and implemented by two Executive Orders. On 1 April 1979. The primary purpose of FEMA is to coordinate the response to a disaster that has occurred in the United States and that overwhelms the resources of local and state authorities. The governor of the state in which the disaster occurs must declare a state of emergency and formally request from the president that FEMA and the federal governmentrespond to the disaster. FEMA also provides these services for territories of the United States, such as Puerto Rico. The only exception is when an emergency and/or disaster occurs on federal property or to a federal asset, for example, the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building inOklahoma City, Oklahoma, or the Space Shuttle Columbia in the 2003 return-flight disaster.
