Les Miserables and Curious Incident halted by power cut
Two shows in London's West End were cancelled after theatres suffered a power cut.
More than 1,000 people watching Les Miserables and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time were evacuated on to the streets.
A transformer which serves the Queen's and Gielgud theatres in Shaftesbury Avenue had overheated.
The costumed cast and audience of Les Miserables filed out of the theatre as fire crews attended.
BBC presenter Sophie Raworth, who was at the Les Miserables show, tweeted that the music stopped "abruptly" after 25 minutes.
Both shows' evening performances will go ahead later.
Les Miserables tweeted: "The show is back on tonight, and we haven't burnt much energy ... So we're gonna be on fire!!"
A spokeswoman for UK Power Network said electricity was disrupted just before 15:00 GMT.
"UK Power Networks engineers rerouted power supplies to all but one customer within a couple of minutes and the final supply was restored as quickly as possible by 3.51pm.
"We apologise to customers, including theatre-goers, for the inconvenience caused."
