Broadway Global honors one Broadway Global Producer of the Year (BGPOY), each winner receives art for creating arts. Only four producer”s have been honored with the “Producer’s Puzzle” created by internationally acclaimed artist Steve Marshall. Each winner also receives the official BGPOY plaque. Past winners include Jordon Scott Gilbert (Ghost), Dale Badway (Pippin), Tom Kirdahy (Mothers and Sons) and Michael Alden (On The Town). This year nominees are coming from around the globe as Broadway has more than a dozen new shows that include producer’s who may still be nominated. Broadway Global accepts BGPOY nominees through social media or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This year only a handful of producer’s will be nominated. In the past four years close to 80 nominees were accepted, but the goal is to cut BGPOY nominees in half.
