    “Stomp” performs at last week’s kick-off of 106.7 Lite FM’s Broadway in Bryant Park, the free lunchtime series. The hourlong show included performances by cast members from “The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess,” “Phantom of the Opera” and “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”

    How about a lunch break with the best of Broadway? There are five Thursdays left to take in “106.7 Lite FM’s Broadway in Bryant Park” series, a lunchtime concert hosted by station personalities and featuring performers from Broadway and off-Broadway musicals.
