New York, NY - May 11, 2022 - The Broadway League congratulates the honorees of the League Awards, which were announced today during the League's 2022 Spring Road Conference, celebrating industry professionals whose outstanding achievements contribute to the success of Broadway on the Road. Since 1992, the League Awards recognize those who have displayed exemplary service to the Touring Broadway industry and are considered innovators of their craft.
The Broadway League's Spring Road Conference returned to New York City, following a two-year hiatus due to the COVID pandemic, bringing together more than 650 members and their staff who represent presenters, producers, general managers, marketing and press directors, education coordinators, and box office and group sales staff from more than 150 markets around the U.S. and Canada. The conference sets the stage for the community to gather and discuss the state of Broadway on the Road, celebrate recent accomplishments, and look towards the future.
"We are thrilled to welcome back our tremendously dedicated League members who have put forward great effort and care in reopening Broadway on the Road at this year's Spring Road Conference," said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. "Since tours resumed last summer, Touring Broadway has presented 34 shows in more than 160 cities and welcomed more than nine million theatregoers to local venues. Celebrating The League Awards provides an incredible opportunity to come together and honor those who work so diligently on behalf of Touring Broadway."
