The excitement of Broadway is Back couldn’t have been any sweeter than the opening in Times Square of Curtain Up! on September 17. It’s three festive days (Sept. 17,18,19) celebrating the Great White Way’s historic reopening filled with entertainment from morning till evening.

Presented by Prudential and Playbill in partnership with The Broadway League and Times Square Alliance, excited hosts Michael Urie and Norm Lewis, opened the festivities revving up the audience as they introduced impeccable Jessica Vosk, singing “Gimme Gimme” and the incomparable Brian Stokes Mitchell with “There’s No Business Like Show Business.” Musical director on piano was the unparalleled John McDaniel. Adding their thoughts were Broadway League’s Charlotte St. Martin and Senator Chuck Schumer.
