Times Square’s annual concert series celebrating the talented singer-songwriters of the theater community returns this summer. Moving to a virtual format this year, Broadway Buskers will be livestreamed every Tuesday night at 7pm ET. Since 2018, Broadway Buskers has brought Broadway actors and composers to the Times Square pedestrian plazas to perform their own original music among the lights and energy of Times Square. While in-person events are on pause and Broadway remains closed for the remainder of 2020, theater fans can still watch and support the multi-talented Broadway community with these weekly virtual concerts.
The beginning of the season includes performers who have appeared on Broadway in Ain’t Too Proud, Come From Away, The Great Comet, The Addams Family and more. For the second year, Musical Theatre Factory (MTF) co-curates with queer, trans, BIPOC artists of excellence from the MTF community. Tune in and enjoy FREE concerts by Broadway professionals from their living room to yours.
While the concerts are free to stream, we encourage audiences to donate to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund, which provides resources and emergency financial assistance to those within the entertainment community who have been impacted by the pandemic, and the Broadway Advocacy Coalition, in support of their ongoing efforts to help Broadway heal, listen and become an anti-racist and equitable community.
Schedule through August 11th:
Heath Saunders (The Great Comet, Alice By Heart, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert)
Rachel Potter (The Addams Family, Evita, Wicked)
Melissa Li & Kit Yan (with special guest Sushma Saha) (Interstate, MISS STEP, Cancelled)

Since its inception and through its partnership with the Center for Institutional and Social Change at Columbia Law School, it has grown into a multi-disciplinary organization uniting artists with legal experts and community leaders to promote anti-racism and equity in criminal justice, education, and the theater industry.
