Broadway in the Boros 2016

In the summer of 2016, MOME created “Broadway in the Boros,” a program that brings Broadway shows directly into neighborhoods across New York City. In Summer 2017, the popular program returns to the delight of audiences throughout the boroughs. Featuring a showcase of live vignettes performed by members of the current casts and members of orchestras from hit musicals, these lunchtime performances are free and open to the public.
