For Chicago residents looking for a taste of Broadway in the Windy City, a concert at Millennium Park this week will certainly have you covered.
The concert, which will be held on Monday night at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion, will feature performances from some of Chicago’s biggest musicals, including “Aladdin,” “The Color Purple,” “Motown the Musical,” and “wicked.”
The event, which is free and open to the public, will start at 6:15 p.m., according to the City of Chicago’s website.
“This is truly our favorite night of the year,” Broadway in Chicago VP Eileen LaCario said in a statement. “The evening brings Chicagoans of all ages together to appreciate Broadway’s best – it is like the ‘Lollapalooza’ of Broadway.”
The concert is one of many free concerts being held at the park this summer. Only two concerts are left this summer, with an Aug. 21 performance by Sam Trump and Acoustic Audile serving as the final show for the season.
