Broadway in Bryant Park
Broadway in Bryant Park is a free summer event where you can see performances of hits from the most popular Broadway musicals. Both on- and off-Broadway shows are represented at this event, which takes place on Thursdays from 12:30 until 1:30 p.m. You can hear hits from Chicago, The Band’s Visit and Frozen, among others. The stage is located on the Bryant Park Lawn, the large grass area in the centre of the park. If you’re on time, you may be able to get one of the famous green chairs. If not, you can just sit and relax on the grass. The event takes place around lunchtime, so grab something to eat and enjoy a leisurely lunch break during a day of sightseeing in New York!
