Broadway in Bryant Park is an annual series presented by 106.7 LiteFM that consists of live performances by current Off Broadway and Broadway shows. One of the benefits of summertime in New York City arguably is the countless number of free outdoor performances. Although, can you really argue with FREE?
Bryant Park is a casual setting. People sit there on lunch break, commuters pass through en route to the B,D,F,M,7 trains, tourists visit the New York Public Library, among the rest.
iLuminate has had the pleasure of performing at Broadway in Bryant Park a few years back and on July 28 of this year Miral was the co-host alongside radio personality Bob Bronson.
If you passed by Bryant Park at midday on Thursday, August 4th, you saw us again!
We opened the show for our fellow friends in Beautiful, An American In Paris, Avenue Q and Holiday Inn.
As you know, our show is in a black out theater, so hosts Rich Kaminsky and Dena Blizzard (One Funny Mother) reminded the attendees to keep that in mind. Seeing our show in its normal setting is a completely different experience!
However, it was refreshing to perform for a crowd that could see our smiling faces! From our point of view, the Library was the backdrop of a sun filled lawn populated with dancing children and fans clapping in time.
Thanks for the opportunity, Broadway in Bryant Park & 106.7 LiteFM!
