BroadwayWorld.com Announces Results of the 7th Annual Theatre Fans' Choice Awards!

With the TONY Awards just around the corner, we're pleased to first share the results of BroadwayWorld's 2009 Theatre Fans' Choice Awards.

While the country may be in a recession, this year's Broadway season was incredibly rich with an abundance of intelligent, emotional, daring, and fun productions

It's no wonder than that passionate theatergoers, seemingly champing at the bit,  came out in droves in order to have their voices heard by casting their votes for their favorite performances, performers, and productions of the season in BroadwayWorld's 7th Annual Theatre Fans' Choice Awards.

In all, more than 400,000 theatergoers and fans weighed in once again breaking site traffic records, and further solidifying the Theater Fans' Choice Awards place as the largest and most popular online Broadway polling event of its kind.

This year's results not only feature anticipated wins, and several surprises, but due to the slew of tremendous shows and memorable performances, some excruciatingly close finishes, too. You may view them here.
