Over the course of many decades, Tavern on the Green has been intimately connected to the world of Broadway. In 1978, the City of New York threw a star-studded party at Tavern to launch its now legendary “I ❤ NY” ad campaign touting Broadway as the spiritual heartbeat of New York. That campaign has been widely credited with bringing the city back from the brink of bankruptcy, transforming it into the internationally beloved cultural mecca it is today. Over the years, countless Broadway productions have celebrated their opening nights inside Tavern’s glittering spaces, including Wicked, Cats, Death of a Salesman, Dreamgirls, and the all-night Hamilton and Hair Tony Awards celebration parties.
Tickets are currently on sale exclusively at TodayTix.com, starting at $40. In line with social distancing protocols, tickets will be sold in pods of 2 and 4, and will require that each pod contain only members of the same party. Doors will open at 7:30pm to allow audience members to enjoy dinner and drinks before the show. A full food and beverage menu will be available for a la carte purchase to fully enjoy the Tavern experience. The concert series will run throughout the summer and into the fall. Additional performers in the line-up will be announced shortly.

ABOUT TAVERN ON THE GREEN
A Central Park staple, the historic Tavern on the Green has been capturing the spirit of New York City since 1934. In 2014, co-owners Jim Caiola and David Salama (previously of Beau Monde and L’Etage in Philadelphia) re-opened Tavern with a completely redesigned space and menu that harkens back to the original landmark featuring warm, celebratory dining spaces, seasonal American fare, classic cocktails, and a robust wine list. Jim and David selected Bill Peet (formerly of Asia de Cuba, Café des Artistes & Patroon) as Executive Chef for the revival of Tavern, who has reinvigorated the menu with creative takes on classic dishes. Tavern on the Green is located within Central Park at 67th Street & Central Park West, New York, NY 10023.
