Broadway Across America is the nationwide Broadway marketing and customer service initiative that serves as a mark of quality, ensuring consumers that they are seeing first-rate touring Broadway shows, often directly from the original Broadway producers.
Broadway In Florida is presented in arrangement with Florida Theatrical Association, a non-profit civic organization with a volunteer board of trustees established to ensure the continued presentation of quality national touring Broadway productions in Orlando, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Miami Beach. Florida Theatrical Association was founded with the purpose of educating and developing new audiences and to encourage and preserve the presentation of touring Broadway theatre.
