On a very special evening this January the streets of downtown Los Angeles will come alive as artists, acrobats, musicians, comedians, and other special performers will be on hand to fill the historic Broadway corridor with art, entertainment, and music for Night on Broadway.
Best part? It’s all free and open to the public!
In 2015 the one-night extravaganza drew some 35,000 estimated Angelenos to the event and for 2016 they’re expecting an even bigger turnout.
There are seven confirmed historic venues hosting performances, including a cabaret at the Million Dollar Theater, comedy at the Tower Theater and a short film festival at the Los Angeles Theater (and that’s really just the tip of the iceberg!).
It’s all slated to go down on Saturday, January 30, 2016 starting at 5:00pm.
Check out the video below (per the Think Tank Gallery) for a taste of last year’s festivities followed by a detailed itinerary of 2016’s scheduled performances after the jump.
