There are moments when I REALLY miss living in New York. While Los Angeles, has many things to offer, the holiday season is almost magical in New York. At least in my opinion. Well, just to throw a little salt in my relocation wound, The Shops at Columbus Circle will now only give you a few amazing places to buy gifts but will be giving the gift of theater. Only In New York and Only For The Holidays, there will be Free Broadway Performances (YES, FREE: NO TICKETS OR RESERVATIONS REQUIRED). New York is a city of performers and this will be a great way to enjoy a break from that cold weather.
EVERY Monday at 5 p.m. beginning Nov. 13 through Dec. 11 on the Second Floor, in The Shops at Columbus Circle’s dazzling Great Room, shows like Wicked, Miss Saigon, A Bronx Tale, Chicago, Sponge Bob Square Pants, and more will be performed under the annual holiday display of twelve massive stars, the largest specialty crafted exhibit of illuminated color display in the world, which hang from the 100-foot-high ceilings.
There is no need to look forward to standing out in the cold waiting for TKTS to release some tickets to the sold-out show that you decided to drop in on.
Hosted by Broadway actor George Psomas (Fiddler on the Roof, South Pacific), performances include:
• November 20 – Home for the Holidays, Red Roses, Green Gold, and Miss Saigon
• November 27 – Wicked (only show)
• December 4 – Chicago, Waitress, Anastasia
• December 11 – Sponge Bob Square Pants, Once on This Island, A Bronx Tale
