It was show time for the cleanup crews at the Adrienne Arsht Center Monday morning after a crowd of 2,400 people had to be evacuated Sunday after the roof started leaking during a performance of The Lion King.
Pictures and videos captured by viewers showed water falling in the lobby.
The show was in the midst of its performance when the show was cancelled.

One person at the center at the time said an alarm went off shortly after the show's intermission.
After the alarm went off, the house lights came on and attendees were told they would need to leave the building.
"It was like an indoor fountain splashing all over the carpet," said one woman.
Robert Schiller, the Executive Vice President of the Adrienne Arsht Center, said flash floods in Downtown Miami caused the drainage line to leak during the performance.
Drains that are meant to take rain water from the roof to the ground could not handle the heavy showers that hit the area on Sunday.
Photos sent to Local 10 showed water falling near the lights below the 4th floor and above the balcony landing on the first floor. There was also standing water in some areas.
The next show is scheduled for Tuesday evening and so far, it will go on as scheduled.
Anyone who was at the show Sunday evening is asked to call the box office Monday to learn their options about seeing another show or receiving a refund. The box office number is 786-468-2337.
On Monday afternoon, John Pritchard, President and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center issued the following statement:
Cleanup efforts are progressing as planned at the Ziff Ballet Opera House following Sunday night’s drain line leak. The building is safe for patrons and Tuesday evening’s 8 pm performance of The Lion King will be presented as scheduled. Additional tickets for performances through June 10, including Tuesday evening’s show, are now available at www.arshtcenter.org. On behalf of the Adrienne Arsht Center, I would like to thank the partners and institutions who offered assistance during the cleanup efforts today.
