Free and open to the public, this specially designed 260-degree, heated photo booth will welcome theatre fans and families to take pictures in Times Square before heading to their evening performances. Cast members from The Cher ShowCome From AwayKing Kong, and The Phantom of the Opera will be handing out complimentary gourmet hot chocolate to the first 500 fans who stop by and present their Kids’ Night on Broadway show tickets.

Joey McIntyre, currently starring as Dr. Pomatter in Waitress, will host the event. Caitlin Kinnunen and Isabelle McCalla, both starring in The Prom, will cover the festivities as social media correspondents.

This event also marks the launch of the MY FIRST BROADWAY SHOW program. Beginning February 26th, first-time theatregoers can visit their show’s merchandise booth and ask for special free stickers to wear and to place on their show program to celebrate their very first Broadway show experience.
