New York's theater scene is getting a summer makeover.
Now's the time to catch the best of the Great White Way outdoors...for free! 106.7 LITE FM’s Broadway in Bryant Park is set to kick off on July 11, and thespians of all ages cannot possibly resist the classic summertime activity.
“It is incredible to be returning for our twentieth year with an all-star lineup of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows,” Chris Conley, program director of 106.7 LITE FM, said in a statement.
Fans of Disney princess movies, stars in training enrolled in acting classes for kids and fans of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows for kids will also find this year's schedule to be nothing short of incredible.
The teen and tween sensation Be More Chill will kick things off on July 11, alongside other kid-approved favorites like King Kong, Stomp and Wicked. July 25 is arguably one of the most anticipated event of summer 2019, as it is the Disney on Broadway takeover. It features Aladdin, Frozen and the longtime sensation, The Lion King. (Catch these favorites in the park before they hit theaters this year.)
