Broadway in Bryant Park

Broadway musicals are a great outing for parents and kids of all ages, but that fun can come with a pretty steep price tag when you’re shelling out for multiple tickets. That’s why Broadway in Bryant Park, hosted by 106.7 Lite FM, is so awesome. Starting on Thursday, July 11, the summer series presents free lunchtime performances by the casts of Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals al fresco in Bryant Park.

While some performances are for a decidedly adult audience (F#%king Up Everything and Chicago on July 18, Avenue Q on July 25), there’s a great lineup of kid- and tween-friendly shows making appearances as well, including Cinderella, Pippin, Stomp and iLuminate: Artist of Light on July 11; The Phantom of the Opera on July 18; Rock of Ages and the Gazillion Bubble Show on July 25; Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and the upcoming Big Fish on August 1; Annie, the Fantasticks and Wicked on August 8; and Motown the Musical and Mamma Mia on August 15. So save your money, show up early and enjoy the sweet sounds of showtunes with the whole family.

Broadway in Bryant Park
takes place on Thursdays from July 11–Aug 15 at 12:30pm.
