Long Wharf Theater, located just off Long Island Sound in New Haven, reports that their facility, which is undergoing interior and exterior renovations, appears to be intact.

A theater spokesman reports that after a Tuesday morning inspection there appears to be no leaks or damage due to Hurricane Sandy which caused tidal surges in New Haven Monday at midnight.

The theater's facilities are raised about five feet on a concrete foundation.

There are some problems with the telephone system but it unclear whether the trouble is storm related.

The front end of the New Haven Food Terminal complex -- where the theater has been located for almost 50 years -- received some damage but none towards the back where the theater is set. A new roof was recently installed for the theater by the building's owner as part of the theater's renovation project.

There will be a performanmce tonifght at 7:30 of "Satchmo at the Waldorf" at its Stage II.

Rehearsals set for today to begin for "The Killing of Sister George," starring and directed by Kathleen Turner, is now slated to start Wednesday.
