Waitress, Chicago, and The Great Comet to Perform at TheaterMania Block Party
On September 10, one block of Manhattan's Third Avenue will be dedicated to celebrating theater.
The lineup of performers has been announced for TheaterMania's annual Block Party. This year, the event, which takes place during the Third Avenue Community Fair, is scheduled for Sunday, September 10. As in years past, the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce will dedicate an entire city block to the celebration of theater around New York City.
The centerpiece of the street fair is TheaterMania's free concert, which starts at noon. It will feature live performances by members of the Broadway shows Waitress, Chicago, Miss Saigon, and the recently closed Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, as well as Rock Star Karaoke, Toot Sweet, the Little Orchestra Society, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and the York Theatre.
Several additional Broadway and off-Broadway shows, both ongoing and upcoming, will have booths on the block. These shows include A Bronx Tale — The Musical, A Clockwork Orange, Curvy Widow, The Band's Visit, and The Parisian Woman, among others.
TheaterMania's block can be found between 74th and 75th Streets on Third Avenue. The party will also feature attractions such as contests, interactive games, giveaways, and insider information about the latest happenings on the New York City theater and performing arts scene. The street fair itself runs from noon to 5pm.
