Hosted and presented by 106.7 LITE FM radio, the 23rd annual outdoor lunchtime series Broadway in Bryant Park opens this summer on Thursday, July 6, and runs for the next three consecutive Thursdays of the month, featuring free performances from the casts of a selection of Broadway’s hit musicals and more.
To enter, go to 41st Street and Sixth Avenue at the Fountain Terrace, where you’ll see the back of the stage; first-come-first-served seating is on the lawn in front of the stage. The lawn opens at 11 am on the day of the show (performances are 12:30 pm-1:30 pm), so you can get a seat or spread out your blanket, grab lunch at one of the kiosks in the park or bring your own, and catch some pre-show rehearsals before the main event.
There are also giveaways and opportunities to enter drawings for great prizes in the area around the Fountain Terrace. This year’s sponsors include Chase Freedom, Core Hydration, Foxwoods Resort Casino, iHeartRadio Broadway, and Mercedes-Benz, with additional support from Taiwan Tourism Bureau, The Neil Diamond Musical, A Beautiful Noise, and the L’Oréal Paris Stand Up Against Street Harassment program, in partnership with NGO Right To Be.
