CEDAR RAPIDS — The shows will go on.
Cedar Rapids arts venues in the flood zone are reopening, with the following changes to their schedules:

The museum reopens Thursday. “We thankfully were not affected by the flood this time around,” said Lori Tofanelli, communications coordinator.

CSPS HALL, 1103 Third St. SE
From CSPS: “As far as we can tell, the protections that the city put in place have prevented floodwaters from reaching the building. (Good job!) However, the area still is under an evacuation order and nightly curfews remain in effect through Saturday, so we’re making some changes to the schedule.”
-- Maarja Nuut: Wednesday show is moved to Feb. 3. Tickets to be honored then.
-- John McCutcheon: Concert at 8 p.m. Friday has been moved to the Campbell Steele Gallery, 1064 Seventh Ave., Marion. A reduced number of seats means the show is nearly sold out; a few tickets may be available at the door; $19 advance, $23 door. Info: Legionarts.org
-- Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino: Staff remains hopeful Sunday’s 7 p.m. concert takes place as originally planned. “This astonishing band from the Puglia region of Italy should be just the thing for a joyful, post-flood, welcome-back celebration.” Tickets: $19 advance, $23 door. Info: Legionarts.org
PARAMOUNT THEATRE, 123 Third Ave. SE
