ES Staff  |  Broadway Theatre

The Broadway League's president, Charlotte St. Martin, stated: "The 75th Tony Award® Ceremony was recently seen by millions of people, who got to experience the special magic of Broadway. Since we reopened last fall, millions more people have seen Broadway LIVE in theaters in New York City and across the country. We're happy to welcome even more of our devoted supporters back to Broadway in the just-started 22-23 season."

As we continue to study the science, audience masking protocols for August and beyond will be assessed monthly and revealed in mid-July. With over 30 performances running this summer, come join us on Broadway!

The national trade organization for the Broadway industry was established in 1930 and is called THE BROADWAY LEAGUE (Charlotte St. Martin, President). Nearly 200 markets in North America and abroad include general managers, producers, presenters, and theatre owners and operators among the League's 700+ members. Over 30 million individuals in New York, as well as those in other parts of the United States and Canada, are exposed to Broadway each year thanks to League members. League Fellows, the Broadway League's newest category of membership, provides access and privileges to up-and-coming professionals from a variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, experiences, and points of view. One of the most sought prizes in the entertainment business is the Antoinette Perry "Tony" Awards®, which the Broadway League co-presents each year.
