This summer Times Square will be transformed into an oasis with 80+ hours a week of intimate performances and activations showcasing the depth and diversity of New York City’s talent, complimenting the TSQ MKT food and retail options that stretch from 42nd to 47th Streets on the Broadway Pedestrian Plazas.  New Yorkers and visitors will encounter everything from MTA Music Under New York musicians to Broadway triple threats stretching to a fourth; from Brooklyn-based circus performers to the diverse sounds and instruments from around the world; and finally landing at the Strand kiosk for coloring amidst the lights and sounds of Times Square.
