BROADWAY BUSKERS Concert Series Curated & hosted by Ben Cameron
*with select artists curated by Musical Theatre Factory
Tuesdays from 5-7pm, from June to September Broadway Plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets
Before you take your seat in the theatre on Tuesday evenings, enjoy original music performed by Broadway actors and composers at the Crossroads of the World. The lineup last summer included Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winners, veteran ensemble members, performers making their Broadway debuts in new hit shows, a world champion whistler, and a simple sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea. Positioned within Times Square Market, the local outdoor food market in Times Square, audiences can enjoy food and Happy Hour drinks while taking in FREE concerts by Broadway professionals.
