Visit the Beacon Theatre on the Upper West Side this Summer

The outdoor summer weather can be great, but on hot sweltering days the AC and indoor air can be a big relief. The Sagamore residents are lucky to have the opportunity to find events going on indoors this summer here on the Upper West Side! The Beacon theatre has events and performances happening on a daily basis all throughout the year—including the summer months! If you are looking for something to do and want to escape the heat, one of the many events they hold is a terrific option.

The Beacon Theatre is located just a quick subway ride downtown on Broadway between 74th and 75th Street. Many high profile musicians, comedians and other performances host shows at this historic venue throughout the year. Some upcoming shows that you can enjoy include musical performances by duo Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo  and Melissa Ethridge this summer. This show will be hosted at the beginning of July, and tickets are still available!

Other upcoming performances include an act from Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally titled Summer of 69. This comedic show is sure to be a hit. Megan Mullally is no stranger to comedy as she spent many years as part of the cast of the popular television show Will & Grace. Nick Offerman spent just some of his television time staring on Parks and Rec. This dynamic duo has an amazing chemistry as they happen to be married! Tickets are still available for this show as well which will take place in August.
