Broadway Makers Celebrates the Return of Live Theatre A Virtual Shopping Experience, PLACES PLEASE!

A new virtual shopping experience is coming to Broadway fans this weekend thanks to a dedicated group of Broadway vendors and members of the Broadway Makers Alliance.

On Sunday, July 25, 2021, beginning at 4pm EDT, theatre fans from across the country will join some of the top Broadway vendors along with cast members from Hamilton, In The Heights, Jersey Boys, Mean Girls, Speakeasy Times Square and more celebrate this highly anticipated virtual shopping experience - PLACES PLEASE: Broadway's Back!

PLACES PLEASE: Broadway's Back! is a FREE virtual shopping experience for fans unlike any other. This one-night only celebration will connect theatre enthusiasts to more than thirty Broadway vendors who create some of the most sought-after Broadway gifts and theatre souvenirs.

Fans can enter each vendor's virtual popup booth for a 1-1 personal shopping experience and have the unique opportunity to meet and chat with the artists behind their favorite fandom item, fans can even meet face to face using our video feature. As our favorite Pretty Woman, Vivian Ward, would say, it would be a "Big Mistake! Big. HUGE!" if you passed up this unique opportunity.
