BWW Feature: And The Nominees Are... BEST FILMED SHOW, PRESENTED FROM ARCHIVAL VIDEO

Let's go to the movies!

BWW Feature: And The Nominees Are... BEST FILMED SHOW, PRESENTED FROM ARCHIVAL VIDEOAs the months of 2020 passed by with people in quarantine during the pandemic, the members of the cabaret and club community explored every option for staying in touch with their audiences, for inspiring people, for keeping fans entertained at home. With much generosity of spirit, the decision was made by many producers and artists to release their shows online, sometimes for small fees (usually with the receipts going to a cause) and sometimes just on their YouTube channels for free. This practice made a real difference in the lives of others who were sheltered in place - particularly New Yorkers who live in small apartments of one, maybe two rooms.
