Broadway Global will share a few exclusive articles on The 2014 Tony Awards. The first must address the Tony Awards producers who offered the following statement to Playbill.com. "The Tony Awards presented the 'in Memoriam' segment both in Radio City last evening and on TonyAwards.com. Presenting in this manner allowed us to include more individuals than we have been able to include most years, and as a result, more accurately reflected the depth of loss suffered by our community this past year." The Tony Awards have now made the 2014 "In Memoriam" segment public on You Tube.

Broadway Global and Theatre Chat attended The 2014 Tony Awards dress rehearsal, we stand by this decision of the Tony Awards producers. "We saw the segment during the 2014 Tony Awards rehearsal. We are happy that the Tony Awards producers showed the 'In Memoriam' to audience members in attendance of The 2014 Tony Awards. We also know the importance of the Tony Awards to share the "In Memoriam" on You Tube, as many turn to this form of media to view past Broadway history. This is a huge step for social media for the Tony Awards."

Broadway Global and Theatre Chat will share a few more stories one about "Kinky Boots" youth star Marquise Neal holding the Tony Award for 2013 Best New Musical, and what it was like to attend the 2014 Tony Award dress rehearsal. The other exclusive stories will share differences of Drama Desk Awards, Theatre World Awards, Broadway Global Producer of the Year and Tony Awards technical aspect, which is more difficult to produce than the Oscars, who show clips of movies and do not offer live performances. We will also share why you did not hear from the Tony Award winning Score, "The Bridges Over Madison County" in a live production number. It took me fifty years to get to The Tony Awards so I will share a few different articles to try to cover so much information.

As last years 2013 Broadway Global producer of the Year Dale Badway (Pippin) prepares to pass on the Broadway Global baton, we all must remember that these producers are leaving a legacy for the arts. The shows they produced will be judged by our society in the future. These award winning works of stage art will show what issues, what stories, what icons, what music captured our souls. Remember all these awards honor different aspects from actors, producers, stage productions, technical, writing... if we are to build future leaders of the arts we must support and honor those who are making changes in this ever growing global society. The arts are the international language bringing acceptance, diversity, understanding and respect of others from around the globe.
