SummerStage, the popular series of FREE live concerts and dance performances in NYC parks, will resume its in-person live performances this summer.
It’s the latest announcement of the return of live performances to New York City after a year of shut downs.
Recently, the Public Theatre announced that the equally popular FREE live Shakespeare in the Park performances also would be returning to Central Park this summer, starting on July 6.
The 2021 SummerStage concert series will hold events at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park and at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem.
There are some new rules for attending, including limited capacity, masks and socially distanced seating.
More importantly, according to the press release, attendees “will require a free ticket, proof of vaccine and/or negative COVID test, and health screening – such as a questionnaire and temperature checks.”
If you don’t meet those criteria, you can still enjoy the performances – virtually.
SummerStage will be live streaming all performances on SummerStageAnywhere.org.
In addition to the free events, SummerStage will hold a ticketed benefit show on Friday, September 17, when Dawes will perform live at Rumsey Playfield
