Photo Flash: Off-Bway in Union Square Nov.30

On November 30, the casts of several Off-Broadway plays including Altar Boyz, The Fantasticks and My Mother's Italian, My Father's Jewish & I'm In Therapy! raised the curtain on four fantastic Fridays of Off-Broadway performances at the Holiday Market in Union Square. 

Some of this year's most talented Off-Broadway performers were on hand to kick-off the first of four successive Fridays (November 30, December 7, 12 & 21) shoppers can enjoy a taste of some of New York's hottest Off-Broadway shows as they wrap up their gift shopping in the Union Square area.  The performances are made possible by the Union Square Partnership and the League of Off-Broadway Theatres and Producers in partnership with Urban Space Management, which organizes the annual Holiday Market.

Throughout the duration of the Market  (through Sunday, December 24th) shoppers also can visit the Union Square information booth, run by the Union Square Partnership, for special holiday coupons from local area businesses as well as discount coupons for a variety of Off-Broadway shows playing in the district and throughout New York City.

Performers will appear on stage at 4PM on each of the four Fridays to treat shoppers to live entertainment at 15th Street and Union Square West in Union Square Park.
