Broadway on Broadway

by Alyson Leonard

Broadway lovers unite! This upcoming Sunday, the 20th annual event Broadway on Broadway will be taking place at 11:30am in the heart of Times Square. For those who aren’t quite sure what Broadway on Broadway is, here’s a quick idea: it is a free outdoor concert presented by The Broadway League that features about a dozen shows from past, current and upcoming seasons on Broadway! It helps expose theatergoers to shows they may never have heard of before, as well as give them a taste of what is to come on Broadway.

This year’s concert will be hosted by Kathy Lee Gifford and will feature songs and appearances from the following list of Broadway shows:

Annie

Bring It On: The Musical

Chicago

Elf

Mamma Mia!

Newsies

Motown: The Musical

Once

Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson

Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark

Bare

Stomp

In addition to the performances, there will be an exclusive sneak peek from season two of SMASH and a special “Nederlander 100th Anniversary Celebration.”

If you have the chance, head on over to Times Square and check this concert out. It is a great chance to see some of your favorite actors perform (for free!). It’s also a great way to meet fellow Broadway fans and come together to celebrate theatre in the heart of  New York City. If you plan on attending, let us know your thoughts and feel free to tweet Camp Broadway  some of your pictures or videos from this event. Who knows? After attending, you may get hooked onto a new musical or be inspired to go see a new show!
