Tonight, September 20, legendary Broadway director and 21-time Tony Award winner Harold Prince will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the the fourth-annual "Broadway Salutes," an industry-wide celebration to honor those who make Broadway great. The event is presented by The Broadway League and Coalition of Broadway Unions and Guilds (COBUG).
"Broadway Salutes" will begin with a meet-and-greet and pinning at 3:30 p.m., followed by the ceremony at 4:30 p.m. This year's event will once again be held in the Times Square Visitors Center (7th Avenue between 46th and 47th Streets).
"Broadway Salutes" recognizes the myriad of artists, technicians, and craftspeople who have made Broadway great for decades.
"Broadway Salutes" will also give special recognition to those individuals working today who have worked 25, 35, and 50 years in their respective theatrical craft – including stagehands, wardrobe workers, hair and makeup artists, theater owners, actors, producers, playwrights, casting directors, general managers, publicists, ushers, designers, musicians, directors, choreographers and more.
Directed by Marc Bruni with musical direction by Charlie Alterman, this year's "Broadway Salutes" program will feature special musical performances from Laura Osnes as well as a first-time video montage of great moments and memories from its honorees.
The year's Broadway Salutes Committee include Flory Seery and Nina Lannan (League Co-Chairs), Carl Mulert and Laura Penn (COBUG Co-Chair), Daniel Adamian, Debbie Bisno, Tony DePaulo, Eric Falkenstein, Jessica Jenen, Nick Kaledin, Patrick Langevin, Aaron Lustbader, Lawrence Paone, Paige Price, Mark Schweppe, John Seid, Charlotte St. Martin, Pat White and Barbara Wolkoff.
