On Monday evening June 15, Inside Broadway honored renowned opera singer Renée Fleming (who starred on Broadway this season in Living on Love) and Broadway & TV star Tony Danza (who starred on Broadway this season in Honeymoon In Vegas) at their annual Beacon Awards. Taking place at The JW Marriott Essex House (160 Central Park South), the Broadway Beacon Awards are presented to individuals in the theatre and Times Square community who have been advocates for increasing the audience for live theatre and for understanding the importance of Arts and Education in the lives of New York City’s young people. The first Broadway Beacon Award was given to Carol Channing in 1995. Michael Presser is the founder and Executive Director of Inside Broadway.
Some of the cast of Kinky Boots was on hand to perform including Andy Kelso, Jeanna de Waal and Tim Ware.
