Jazz and the Bard

July 03, 2018

There is always something exciting going on in New York City, and this July is no different. The Jazz in July Festival and Shakespeare in the Park are two of the most popular events of the summer. If you are lucky, you will be able to experience both, but hopefully, you can make it to one.

The Jazz in July Festival, July 17-26, takes place at the 92nd Street Y which is about 20 minutes from the Broadway Plaza Hotel. This year’s festival includes programs like Crazy Rhythm/Prohibition, The Elegant Piano: Teddy Wilson. Tommy Flanagan, and Hank Jones, Richard Rogers: With a Song in My Heart, Dizzy! Celebrating Dizzy Gillespie, Leonard Bernstein: Jazz on the Town, and Blues in the Night.

If the play is more of your thing, Shakespeare in the Park will be featuring an incredible performance of Twelfth Night from July 17-August 19. You can enter the digital lottery or wait in the ticket lines on the day of the performance in order to receive free tickets to the show.

COVID-19 Update: We are temporarily closed with plans to reopen August 1, 2020.
