2013 BroadwayWorld.com Award Results Are In with RECORD Number of Votes; MATILDA, KINKY BOOTS, PIPPIN, Bette Midler & More Win Big!

Wow! When BroadwayWorld.com launched back in 2003, one of the very first site features was our Fans' Choice awards. Each year since, we've set new records for online voting totals and are proud to share that our 2013 voting more than DOUBLED our 2012 records with a massive turnout.

Once again, hundreds of thousands of theatregoers and fans weighed in, breaking site traffic records and further solidifying the BroadwayWorld.com Awards place as the largest and most popular online Broadway polling event of its kind, open to all and with fully visible and audited results.

With under one week until the Tony Awards, the fans have had their say (including as in past years, some notable Tony snubs), and the winners are...
