'Broadway on Broadway' Now Under Cambridge Security
"With an anticipated crowd exceeding 50,000 spectators at one of the busiest and most famous intersections of the world, creating a safe environment is of the upmost importance," said David Malefsky, Senior Vice President of Cambridge Security Services. "We are there from beginning to end - from the set up, to the overnight watch, through cleanup, working diligently with local authorities and event organizers to make sure all performers and attendees have a safe, fun and memorable experience."
As one of New York City's greatest outdoor events, the annual Broadway on Broadway event is the official kickoff to the 2008-2009 Broadway season. This free outdoor concert stretches from 43rd to 47th streets and features musical numbers and appearances from almost every play and musical on Broadway, as well as sneak peeks at several upcoming shows opening in the new theatre season. This year's event will be hosted by Drew Lachey, currently starring in Monty Python's Spamalot and perhaps best known as the winner of "Dancing with the Stars" and a member of the phenomenally successful pop group 98 Degrees.
Having provided security services for this event for the past six years, the Cambridge team will assign professional officers responsible for crowd control, monitoring all entrances and exits, verifying credentials, providing security for all talent as well as overnight security. The Cambridge team has extensive experience with high-profile events including Pinstripes in the Park at Bryant Park, the Quick Chek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning at Solberg Airport, the Breeders Cup at Monmouth Park Race Track, GlobAl Green Expo, R&B and Jazz Festival at Liberty State Park, the Commerce Bank 2008 Senior PGA Championship and firework display at Eisenhower Park, as well as various sporting events on behalf of the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority.
