All Broadway shows — both matinees and evening performances — were cancelled Saturday after New York state officials declared a weather emergency.

A ban on travel in New York and the suspension of public transportation forced Broadway producers and theater owners to pull the plug.

Charlotte St. Martin — president of The Broadway League, which represents producers— says: "We expect normal operations to resume for tomorrow's Sunday matinees."

The storm didn't stop the inaugural three-day BroadwayCon — sort of like a Comic Con for thespians — at a midtown hotel.

Further north, a Rita Moreno concert at Jazz at Lincoln Center was canceled.

The last time Broadway took a big weather hit was Superstorm Sandy in 2012. It darkened Broadway for four days and cost more than $8.5 million in lost revenue.
