One of my favorite events of the years is Broadway’s Stars In The Alley. Every year for the last few years, the Broadway League puts on a free outdoor concert. The 2 hour event is sort of an unofficial dress rehearsal for the Tony Awards and features appearances and performances from over 30 different Broadway shows. The event is held Friday, June 3rd, in the historic Shubert Alley on West 44th, from 12:30 to 2:30 pm, rain or shine.

The nice thing is, it’s usually a well organized event and normally starts on time, so get there early! This year’s participants include performances from the cast of Something Rotten, The Color Purple, Get On Your Feet and more. The cast of Hamilton will make an appearance as well, although not performing. Here’s a full list.
