Free Broadway Concerts in Bryant Park Start Today
This summer, there’s only one place where you’ll see a masked phantom share the floor with a rambunctious group of hairy hippies (other than the F train at about 1am). And it’s all free!
The best musical theater talents are joining with 106.7 LiteFM for this year’s Broadway in Bryant Park Concert Series. Your favorite shows share the stage every Thursday (12:30 PM-1:30 PM) through July and into August. Today, grab a bite to eat and enjoy the summer sun while listening to classic girl group pop from Baby It’s You, bopping along with the cast of Sister Act or, for change of pace, craning your neck to see the acrobatic expertise of the always-fabulous Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana.
The rest of the summer will feature diverse performances from Broadways casts all along the comic and musical spectrum, including selections from Catch Me If You Can, Anything Goes and the ever-green Wicked. It’s not just a lunch break; it’s a Broadway buffet.
See some favorites from past Bryant Park performances (including a classic roving report for Broadway.com from Glee cutie Jonathan Groff) after the jump…
