The Show Goes on in Branson MO; Shows, Attractions Ready for Visitors

Less than a week after a F2 tornado came through Branson, the city is up and running with almost all shows and hotels open for business.  Even though there was damage sustained, much of it was cosmetic and with the aide of volunteers and round-the-clock effort by workers, the city has made a quick recovery.

Branson is famous for its shows and these entertaining productions are the reason many visitors come to town.  Luckily, only six of the more than 50 theatres in Branson have sustained damage as a result of the storm on February 29, 2012.  Here are updates on theaters and shows that were affected, with opening dates listed:
