It was quite hot as far as viewership goes. But the temperature was up there too, we won’t deny.
Oh, and of course, stardom was on the rise. Shubert Alley had only brought out Broadway’s best. Produced by the Broadway League and hosted by United Airlines, came STARS IN THE ALLEY, a celebration of the 2016-2017 Broadway season, adding festivity to top the day in preparation for the 2017 Tony Awards.
Tituss Burgess of musical fame and known for his work on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt took the stage. And he played his part well. What followed was an example only Broadway could define. You had A Bronx Tale and Chicago and Cats and Kinky Boots. You watched intently for Aladdin, Groundhog Day The Musical, Wicked and The Phantom of the Opera, and you enjoyed it all.
The inevitable Tony Awards, the poster-child behind the event, would ring true in the hearts and minds of attendees: this was one function not to miss. It’s due to hit CBS on Sunday, June 11th.
But we digress. To the shock of no-one: there was a strong human factor behind the party. All as the culmination of theater fanatics and the mingling of voices married into wonderful cadence. Strong flavor. Strong voices. A perfect event to compliment the perfect day.
