The outdoor ceremony took place in Father Duffy Square.

The event also featured special live performances from Tony Award nominee Montego Glover, Matt Bogart, Tituss Burgess and Christopher Jackson.

Presented by The Broadway League and the Coalition of Broadway Unions and Guilds (COBUG), Broadway Salutes honors a wide-range of theatre professionals - including stagehands, actors, producers, managers, theater owners, publicists, ushers, agents, make-up artists, dressers, designers, directors, choreographers, musicians and more - who have dedicated their careers to the Broadway theatre industry.

An industry-wide celebration co-chaired by Daniel Adamian (General Manager and Counsel) and Laura Penn (Executive Director of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society), the Broadway Salutes planning committee was comprised of Dori Berinstein (Producer), Michael David (Producer), Andy Drachenberg (Committee Coordinator), Dan Gilloon (Local One), Nick Kaledin (ATPAM), Shannon Koger (Local 764), Nina Lannan (General Manager), Carl Mulert (USA), Lawrence Paone (Local 751), Paige Price (AEA), Jeffrey Richards (Producer), Charlotte St. Martin (Broadway League), Stuart Thompson (Producer/General Manager), Charlotte Wilcox (General Manager) and Connie Wilkin (Production Manager).

The Broadway League, founded in 1930, is the national trade association for the Broadway industry. The League's 600-plus members include theatre owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers in over 240 North American cities, as well as suppliers of goods and services to the theatre industry. Each year, League members bring Broadway to nearly 30 million people in New York and on tour across the U.S. and Canada. Visit Visit www.BroadwayLeague.com.

The members of the Coalition of Broadway Unions and Guilds (COBUG) have labor contracts or work for or with the Broadway League. COBUG was established to strengthen the position of Unions and Guilds within the industry, to participate in decision making that affects Broadway and the art and craft of theatre at large, and to educate the broader community about the collective role Coalition members play in keeping our industry vibrant and healthy.
