An Awards Luncheon for the Broadway Association was celebrated on May 8th at the InterContinental New York Times Square hotel.  The annual event honored Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company for his visionary leadership.

A Corporate Leadership Award was presented to Crain’s New York Business.  The luncheon was kept lively and laughing by Fox 5 News’ Ernie Anastos who served as Master of Ceremonies.

Entertainment featured Broadway’s Kerry Butler who was Belle in Beauty and the Beast, Eponine in Les Miserables among others.  Her talented musical companion was Seth Rudetsky, musician, actor, writer, and radio host. He currently is the host of “Seth’s Big Fat Broadway” on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio’s On Broadway. The show focuses on Rudetsky’s knowledge of Broadway theatre history and trivia.
