The execs at Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, located just off I-95 and just off the waves crashing from Long Island Sound, are keeping a close look at the tides and generation weather from Sandy.
So far -- following one high tide around noon on Tuesday -- all seems to be OK at the theater, which is undergoing also renovation of its theater, lobby and outdoor space.
But all eyes are fixed at the midnight high tide tonight, which is expected to be Sandy's peak of power.
A theater spokesman says execs are in close contact with the city of New Haven. They also point out that the theater is raised five feet up on concrete blocks.
There is no performance tonight at its only show at the moment, "Satchmo at the Waldorf." A decision will be made Tuesday afternoon regarding the planned Tuesday night performance. That show ends its run Nov. 11.
Rehearsals also start Tuesday for the first main stage show of the season, "The Killing opf Sister George" directed and starring Kathleen Turner. The show plays Nov. 28 to Dec. 23.
