BroadwayGirlNYC: August Picks!
Back to the Article
If you love Broadway, and I have a feeling you do, you want to absorb it in every way and on every occasion possible. There are books and documentaries and cast albums and of course all of the delicious shows currently running on Broadway. On top of that, in New York City, we're fortunate enough to have access to a bevvy of theatre-related events -- many of which are free or low-cost -- to enjoy on the days we can't get to a show.
BroadwayWorld has a detailed & comprehensive calendar of everything you can find in the city (as well as over 130 other cities around the US & the world). Here are a few that I have hand-picked: the events about which I'm the most excited. These ones get the official BroadwayGirlNYC stamp of approval for the month of August.
