What insane amount of money New Yorkers pay in rent prices they recoup, at least partially, in free cultural happenings. Broadway in Bryant Park, the popular annual series which brings scaled-down versions of Broadway classics to the Manhattan park, will return for its 20th season this summer.
Each performance is a mini-musical starring actors from three separate shows performing hit songs and routines. Performances will include the biggest hits from classic musicals including The Phantom of the Opera, Jersey Boys, and Chicago. There’s also a “Disney on Broadway Takeover” on July 25, with songs from Aladdin, The Lion King, and Frozen to be performed.
