Bright Lights: Free Broadway
They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway — and at The Shops at Columbus Circle this season. On November 14, “Broadway Under the Stars” kicks off, giving a sneak peek at some of New York City’s top musicals. The free five-week series features concerts and performances from shows like Anastasia (November 14), Chicago (November 28), and more. Here are just four of the many shows that you can preview at The Shops at Columbus Circle — and where to do some all-star theater-inspired shopping.
Paramour (November 14)
Cirque du Soleil's first Broadway show, Paramour, is themed around the Golden Age of Hollywood, complete with sparkling gowns and smart tuxedos. But we can’t take our eyes off the slinky outfits that the Cirque du Soleil acrobats wear as they perform gravity-defying stunts. You can find some slinky bodywear of your own at Wolford, which — in addition to its famed hosiery – stocks sleek pieces that works as under or outerwear.
Kinky Boots (November 21)
In the musical Kinky Boots, a line of sexy high-heel boots saves a cobbler’s struggling business. Want to rock your own pair of kinky boots? Stop by Stuart Weitzman. Whether it’s an over-the-knee Hijack Boot in black suede or a pair of velvet Ruggina Booties with a stacked heel, Stuart Weitzman will make you feel like you’re on stage, too.
Waitress (December 5)
The heart-warming Waitress is the story of an expert pie maker in a small town who enters a baking contest and finds the recipe for happiness. It’s pie paradise at Williams-Sonoma, which carries ceramic pie dishes in a multitude of sizes, as well as molds, crust cutters, mixes, and more. And once you’re done, don’t you need a handmade wooden basket to transport your creation in style?
School of Rock (December 12)
A wannabe rock star takes a job as a substitute teacher in School of Rock and enlists his students to join his band. Want to outfit your own posse? Head to Diesel, where you’ll find the coolest rock-and-roll looks, including Diesel’s signature jeans, black-on-black looks, and leather jackets for all ages.
