So much excitement and happiness going on celebrating the triumphant comeback of our Broadway Theater scene all Fall long. The celebration truly will go into full swing tomorrow with the long awaited anticipation of the 2020-2021 edition of The Tony Awards. There seriously has been so much that we’ve missed about the community we call home in these past 18 1/2 months of being dark.
Little throwback to one of our personal favorite TV commercials from Visa sponsoring Broadway’s biggest night over the years. In promotion for the 2001 Tony Awards, this 60 second commercial was captured beautifully in black and white exploring the life of the Big Apple and our Theater backyard. There’s also a voiceover actor sharing a powerful poem on WHAT IS BROADWAY. If you listen very carefully, the words is the ultimate truth about this community we love near and dear.
We at New York Broadway Tours are so happy to celebrating this community we love’s triumphant comeback. At the same time, we are preparing to relaunch our Walking Tours later this year. We cannot wait to see all of you in person and share with you these exact words on our community that we love so much. It was a rough 18 1/2 months (and its still out there) but we’re still ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
The 74th Annual Tony Awards will be coming to you live from Broadway’s legendary Winter Garden Theatre tomorrow night. It all starts at 7pm EST with Audra McDonald hosting actual ceremony of Awards via Paramount+. Immediately at 9pm EST, transfer to the CBS telecast as Leslie Odom Jr. hosts the 2nd half entitled BROADWAY’S BACK which will be a full concert event.
PLEASE SHARE AND RETWEET THIS COMMERCIAL!!! We all need this reminder about Broadway.
Who remembers this commercial?
Who is excited for the the Tonys tomorrow night?
