The event, presented by The Broadway League in partnership with AARP and sponsored by Spectrum, will take place in Duffy Square in Times Square. The outdoor celebration begins at 6:30 PM.
The program will include special guest appearances and performances from current and past Broadway stars, including Ana Villafañe and cast members from On Your Feet! as the show launches its national tour. Performers will also include Rodney Ingram (The Phantom of the Opera) and Emma Pfaeffle (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).
