Broadway is taking the threat of the mammoth storm seriously, with theater owners canceling all Sunday evening and Monday shows long before a drop of rain fell in Times Square.

Sundays are big days for Broadway. Many shows have both a matinee and evening performance. But forecasts called for rain late Sunday or early Monday and subway service is to be halted, so all Sunday evening performances were scrubbed, including "The Book of Mormon," Mama Mia!" ''Mary Poppins," ''The Lion King" and "Newsies."

Off-Broadway shows including "Stomp," ''Bad Jews" and "Golden Child" were also canceled.

Other shows had no evening show scheduled, including "Cyrano de Bergerac," ''Chaplin," ''Enemy of the People," ''Once," ''Jersey Boys" and "Nice Work If You Can Get It."
