Photo Coverage: Broadway on Broadway 2007

On Sunday, September 16, thousands upon thousands of fans of Broadway assembled in Times Square for the 16th Annual Broadway on Broadway Concert presented by Continental Airlines and hosted by Hairspray's Lance Bass. BroadwayWorld brings you photos of the on-stage performances with stars from such shows as Les Miserables, Curtains, Chicago, Mary Poppins, Rent, Legally Blonde, The Drowsy Chaperone and more!

Appearing this year were: Lea Salonga (Les Miserables), Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale), Debra Monk (Curtains), Laura Osnes (Grease), Max Crumm (Grease), Adriane Lenox (Chicago), Julia Murney (Wicked), Tamyra Gray (Rent), Ashley Parker Angel (Hairspray), Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), Carolee Carmello (Mamma Mia!), Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins), Gavin Lee (Mary Poppins), Jennifer Hope Wills (The Phantom of the Opera), Orfeh (Legally Blonde) and many more!
 
This year, two new elements were introduced to the festivities:

Broadway's Biggest Fan Contest - Fans were asked to submit a sixty-second video showing why they are Broadway's biggest fan.  Videos from 3 finalists were broadcast on a jumbo screen in Times Square in front of a crowd of thousands.

Broadway Fan Zone - which gave fans an opportunity to enjoy the concert from a VIP area right near the stage. It's was an up-close and personal standing-room section available to the first 100 fans that arrive dressed as their favorite Broadway character.
