'Jersey Boys' show evacuated due to bomb threat

Suspicious packages were the cause of evacuation at Bank of America Theater tonight during a run of 'Jersey Boys,' a Broadway in Chicago musical.

Authorities did not find anything dangerous inside the boxes, but found two notes attached to each box, according to Chicago Breaking News Center; one note saying, "this is not a bomb," while the other note read, "this is not going to end good."

A few tweets came in shortly after the incident by mostly concerned Chicagoans.

I was also surprised that they weren't detouring CTA busses...

were any of you on the bus where a girl in a yellow shirt was talking to out of towners and finally got a hold of someone since twitter was quiet? that was me ;-)
