12 Broadway Shows Coming in October

New York City has always been a home to creative souls. Actors, musicians, artists, fashion designers, and chefs flock to this creative hub to share their talents with others who are drawn to the city—whether it’s for one day or forever.

Broadway is one of the most well-known creative collectives in the United States, and its shutdown was one of the true tragedies of the pandemic. However, the shows are back, and the performers are aching to be heard.

The Marmara Park Avenue is only a thirty-minute walk to the strip of theaters where dreams come true and stories come to life. Read about some of the Broadway shows coming in October below, and either book your tickets or ask our 24-hour concierge service for assistance.
