For lovers of musical theater, the Broadway in Bryant Park concert series is one of the best things to do in the summer in NYC. Presented each year by the radio station 106.7 Lite fm, it’s a great way to spend a Thursday lunch hour: It’s outdoors, it’s free and it features performances from some of the best Broadway musicals, as well as Off Broadway shows. Bring a blanket, sit in the sun and let your inner show-tune fan out to play in the park for a while.
