There’s nothing like summer in the city!

The sun is finally out. Our Broadway Black favorites are now Tony winners. Audra is still liking our tweets. Motown is coming back to Broadway. All is well in the world.

What could possibly be the cherry on top of our ice cream? Show tunes in the park. FOR FREE.
