"In 1997, from my college dorm room at Syracuse University, I created a website as an ode to The Phantom of the Opera's Michael Crawford as a way for his fans to come together," said BroadwayWorld Founder Robert Diamond. "Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that it would evolve into an online community for theater lovers and professionals from all around the world, or that twenty years later, we would be celebrating this milestone with so many talented artists. I love the theatre, I love this community and we ALL love Broadway Cares."

As previously announced, BroadwayWorld's 20th Anniversary Celebration Concert will be hosted by Tony Award-Winning Broadway legend Chita Rivera, along with her longtime friend, BroadwayWorld's own Richard Ridge. The festivities will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at the iconic Sony Hall (235 W 46th St., NY, NY), in the heart of Broadway's theatre district. Tickets for the event are now on sale at bww20.broadwayworld.com.

BroadwayWorld's 20th Anniversary Celebration Concert creative team includes direction by Broadway veteran, longtime friend and occasional BroadwayWorld contributor Richard Jay-Alexander, choreographers Baayork Lee and Kyle Garvin, and Richard's frequent collaborator, musical director Kevin Stites, with Nellie Beavers serving as Executive Producer.
