NY PopsUp Festival Continues Performance Initiative on Broadway

On Saturday, April 10, NY PopsUp, the statewide initiative designed to celebrate and reinvigorate the arts in New York, presented the second performance inside a Broadway theater since New York’s venues were shuttered by the pandemic more than a year ago.  A socially distanced audience made up of ​Broadway performers who have been out of work for the past year watched Broadway’s own Amber Iman perform on the stage of the Broadway Theatre. Cast members from Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of The Temptations, Chicago, Come From Away, Hamilton, Jagged Little Pill, Dear Evan Hansen, Diana The Musical, Moulin Rouge!, West Side Story, Wicked, Tina – The Tina Turner Musical, and The Book of Mormon shared a happy reunion as NY PopsUp continued into its 7th week.
