re: With outdoor subways not running until 6pm (too late for many cast/crew/audience members), why would some theaters choose to have a performance tonight??

Just as the museums were packed today with tourists many of whom would have wandered around outdoors in nicer weather, performing on snow days not only fulfills the commitment to folks who had bought tickets for shows and may have no plan B for seeing it, but also provides a great way to introduce new folks to theatre because their other options were eliminated. People who work on shows have contingency plans because over the winter months they know this may happen a few times. It's a part of the job just as it is for the many public employees, hospital employees etc etc who know that working goes with the territory. No doubt some locals who have tickets can't make it (and we don't hear that often that they are not somehow accommodated otherwise), and some who don't have tickets suddenly have new opportunities to see shows. Someone saw Hamilton tonight because someone else couldn't.
