Broadway in Bryant Park is Back

One of the park's most popular series is back, debuting Thursday, July 9. This year, a host of popular shows will participate, including MAMMA MIA!, The Phantom of the Opera, CHICAGO, Matilda, and more.

The biggest live music series of them all returns to Bryant Park next Thursday, July 9, when we welcome back Broadway in Bryant Park, presented by 106.7 Lite FM. This wildly popular series, hosted by Lite FM personalities, presents the casts from hit Broadway and Off-Broadway shows performing the songs that made their shows successful. 

For six consecutive Thursdays, from 12:30pm-1:30pm, Bryant Park’s lawn will serve as an open-air theater for some of the most talented singers currently performing on New York City stages. This is your chance to hear showstoppers from 25 shows in all, for no charge.

The series gets off to a fast start as Lite FM’s Delilah welcomes the casts from STOMP, WICKED, It Shoulda Been You, and FUERZA BRUTA. Comedy legends Penn & Teller will make a special appearance as co-hosts. Chairs are provided for those who arrive early enough, but spectators are also welcome to bring their own blankets to sit on as well.

Future programs include the casts from Finding Neverland, CHICAGO, SISTAS: The Musical, and MAMMA MIA! on July 16; Kinky Boots, BEAUTIFUL, The Phantom of the Opera, and SAYONARA on July 23; Matilda, On the Town, LES MISERABLES, and The Fantasticks on July 30; AMAZING GRACE, SOMETHING ROTTEN!, Ruthless!, Allegiance: A New Musical, and A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder on August 6; and, winding up the series on August 13, Mrs. Smith’s Broadway Cat-Tacular!, Once Upon a Mattress, The King and I, and Dames at Sea.
