One of my favorite things to do in the summer is pack a lunch on Thursday and head to Bryant Park. I go to See Broadway and Off Broadway shows perform hour-long concerts with cast members from all the current greatest shows. I never missed a Thursday last year. My favorite performances then, were Rocky, On The Town, If/then and Heathers. It’s a PR event so they sing songs from their shows and dance and even stop for pictures after. If you get there early enough you can even get some of their free promotional items!. I like going early so I can actually get a chair and sit close up to the stage and of course to see what free stuff they give out that day. Last year I got a sailor hat from On the Ttown, a “Heathers” tote bag, pre-printed waving fans and more. They also have contests to win tickets to shows. I haven’t won yet, but maybe this year will be my lucky year!
Visit bryantpark.org. I can’t wait to see which shows they have lined up for this year.
