Another Fabulous Year In The Broadway Theatre-Tony Award Nominations 2016 Are Announced

To many of us avid theatergoers to Broadway, today is one of those days where we get so excited for the many talented actors, actresses and creative forces that are responsible for the terrific live Broadway Theatre that we get to enjoy day in and day out in New York City.

For the second year in a row we have so many talented Broadway performers that dazzle us on the stage that for several award categories, its almost impossible to choose a clear winner.  Either way I thought I'd write a short article today to simply "tip my hat" to the hundreds of brilliant actors and creative talent on Broadway and say thank you for all the excitement that you bring to millions of theatergoers all over the world that are entertained by the magic you create on stage.

I have "highlighted" the links for the Broadway shows that are currently still playing.

The 2016 Tony Awards will air on CBS on Sunday June 12, 2016 and I can't wait to watch them.  This years show should be one of the most watched Tony Awards shows in the history of Broadway.  I sure hope so.

Enjoy the Broadway Theatre.  If you need assistance with purchasing tickets we hope you'll consider a call to my company Applause-Tickets.  We'd love to talk with you.
