NEW YORK — Broadway shows including “Jersey Boys” and “Avenue Q” were resuming Sunday after manhole fires spurred the evacuation of a theater complex while performances were under way Saturday night.
Three windows in the New World Stages complex cracked near the manhole blast and were being replaced Sunday, and all its shows were set to play as scheduled, according to a representative for the company that runs the complex.

“All is well at New World Stages this morning,” Michael Coco, of the Shubert Organization, said in an email.
Flames shot into the air from West 50th Street near Eighth Avenue around 8 p.m. Saturday, photos posted on social media showed. Theatergoers described hearing bangs and smelling smoke.
