Broadway Buskers, the annual Times Square concert series celebrating singer-songwriters of the theatre community, continues August 4 at 7 PM ET. The series is presented online this summer due to the ongoing pandemic.

Curated and hosted by Ben Cameron, the free live streamed concerts launched July 21 and continue Tuesday evenings through October 27. For the second year, Musical Theatre Factory co-curates with queer, trans, BIPOC artists of excellence from the MTF community.
