Broadway in Bryant Park, presented by 106.7 Lite FM, is back! This summer concert series is held on Thursday from 12:30 pm-1:30 pm on the lawn of—you guessed it—Bryant Park. Each week, cast members from several different shows entertain audiences by performing memorable numbers. Though they are out of costume, these talented folks still put on one heck of a show for those who have gathered in the park.

This summer, people have already been graced with performances from the casts of “Chicago, The Color Purple,” “Finding Neverland,” "The Fantasticks," “Wicked,” "Paramour," “STOMP,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Les Miserables” and more.
