(ABC7NY) — Broadway shows are resuming after two manholes exploded in Manhattan Saturday night, sending flames shooting from the ground and causing the evacuation of a theater complex.

The explosion happened on 50th Street and 8th Avenue in Midtown.

All Saturday evening performances scheduled at New World Stages – ‘Jersey Boys,’ ‘Avenue Q,’ ‘The Play that Goes Wrong,’ ‘Puffs,’ and ‘A Spirited History of Drinking’ were canceled.
