Broadway theaters are accommodation visitors with special schedules during the holiday season 

New York, NY — The holidays are a perfect time to see a show. Broadway performs every day of the week at multiple curtain times to accommodate every schedule, including holidays.

During Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks, some shows are changing their performance schedules. Alternate curtain times – including special matinees and evening performances – provide a variety of opportunities to better accommodate the changing schedules of theatregoers throughout holiday weeks.

“With this season’s diverse assortment of new and classic musicals and plays, you’ll see signing, singing, rapping, tapping, and rocking out! Our stories are about historical, fictional, and even canine characters. There is an abundance of show choices and a variety of curtain times available to make planning your Broadway holiday gift list even easier,” says Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League. “Broadway performs every day of the week at multiple curtain times so you can see the perfect show at the perfect time, especially during the holidays.”

Some shows will play on Thanksgiving Day, and many shows will play Friday matinees that week. During Christmas week, in addition to some Christmas Eve and Christmas Day performances, alternate curtain times include Sunday matinees and evening performances. Check Broadway.org to see the holiday performance schedules and easily find out where and when shows are playing.

Fireballs to Flash in November Night Sky as Taurid Meteor Shower Peak

November 5, 2015

accuweather-taurid meteor

By Brian Lada, Meteorologist for AccuWeather.com 

AccuWeather Global Weather Center – AccuWeather reports cosmic fireballs will occasionally light up the night sky as the Taurid meteor shower approaches its peak into next week.

“Every year, the Earth passes through a stream left by Comet Encke, producing the Taurid Meteor Shower,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said.

“This shower is notorious for producing fireballs, and there are signs that this could be a year of enhanced activity,” Samuhel added.

Fireballs are extremely bright meteors that last for several seconds and can light up an entire countryside when they are at their brightest.

Unlike other meteor showers thought the year, the peak of the Taurid shower is drawn out, lasting nearly a week.

This year, the peak is expected to occur from Nov. 5 through Nov. 12, but some meteors from the Taurids will continue through the end of the month.

The long peak of the shower means that stargazers will have several opportunities to see the Taurids, and one cloudy night should not prevent people from catching the display.

“Usually the shower only produces 5-10 meteors per hour,” Samuhel said.

The best time for viewing the Taurids may prove to be near the end of the shower’s peak during the new moon.

The new moon will mean that the sky will be darker, making the Taurids appear even brighter as they glide across the night sky.

As for when to look for the Taurids, there is no specific time of the night that will bring more shooting stars than another time of the night.

Whenever it is dark, you’ll have the chance to see some fireballs flash as they streak through the night sky.
