Come out and hear some of the best songs from hit Broadway musicals right in your neighborhood! Free performances featuring current Broadway stars presented by the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment and our partners
The Mayor's Office of Media & Entertainment thanks its 2017 Broadway in the Boros partners, including: Brooklyn College, Univision, The Village Voice and Bai.
In the summer of 2016, MOME created "Broadway in the Boros," a program that brings Broadway shows directly into neighborhoods across New York City. In Summer 2017, the popular program returns to the delight of audiences throughout the boroughs. Featuring a showcase of live vignettes performed by members of the current casts and members of orchestras from hit musicals, these lunchtime performances are free and open to the public.
Presented in Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island, the outdoor performances are set in venues including public parks and plazas in neighborhoods where live music programming is infrequent.
In the summer of 2016, Broadway in the Boros presented SHE LOVES ME, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, BEAUTIFUL (with the addition of a cameo performance by former GLEE star Darren Criss), KINKY BOOTS, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and STOMP.
Broadway in the Boros is a partnership between the Broadway Theatre community and New York City Parks Department, along with AFM Local 802 and alliances among City Agencies, neighborhood organizations, and local cultural institutions.
