This summer, Bryant Park and New York’s 106.7 LiteFM have been offering free lunchtime mini-concerts on Thursday afternoons featuring performances from current and upcoming Broadway shows. Today, I caught part of the show during my lunch break and captured images of some performers onstage and off.

The concerts run from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30pm on The Lawn at Bryant Park.

Complete Broadway in Bryant Park schedule:

July 9
“Phantom of the Opera, “STOMP,” “Avenue Q” and “In The Heights”

July 16
“Little Mermaid,” “9 to 5,” “Pure Country” and “Toxic Avenger”

July 23
“Mary Poppins,” “Rock of Ages,” “Vanities” and “Next to Normal”

Bryant Park is located in midtown Manhattan at 215 East 42nd Street behind the New York Public Library's main branch. The Bryant Park Lawn is a gathering place for thousands of nature-starved office workers for lunch on any fine weekday. It is planted with a rye/fescue/bluegrass mix. The lawn is 300 feet long and 215 feet wide.
