This event is managed by the Broadway League and is a free outdoor concert NYC for everyone to enjoy. This free Broadway event features a mix of songs from old and new Broadway show  and celebrates the premieres of many of Broadway's fall lineup.

What to Expect: This free Broadway event is a free sample of what all the new shows - as well as many of the classic shows - have to offer as songs and dance. It is also a chance for many people to see what the Broadway season is going to be like at no cost to them before they decide whether they want to go to any shows.

  • Classics: Some of Broadway's most popular shows and songs are also included in this free Broadway event. It gives tribute to the best shows and brings some of their most famous songs to fans who may not have gotten a chance to see them in the actual show.
  • Free: Seeing 'free' and 'broadway' together rarely happens, but Broadway on Broadway is a rare exception. This free Broadway event comes at no cost to anyone in attendance.

Inside Knowledge: Broadway on Broadway first began in 1992 when the event was used to welcome people to the National Democratic Convention that year. It was so popular that the Broadway League decided to host this free concert each year in September.

Event Hints:

  • Be ready for a long day: There are a ton of acts that are performed during this concert. Expect the day to be long and prepare for it.
  • Be ready to stand: The Broadway on Broadway concert brought in more than 40,000 people last year. Expect there to be only space for standing, so be prepared for that.
  • Expect mostly new acts: While a couple of classic songs are included, the Broadway on Broadway event mainly focuses on the new shows that are premiering that year.
