    In honor of the Broadway Advocacy Coalition, Broadway VS was created as a result of the impact of global phenomenon Verzuz. Furthermore, the fundraiser was a celebration of Black culture on Broadway for Broadway Advocacy Coalition. It also served as an opportunity for BAC to honor Tony nominated Broadway legends Joshua Henry and Norm Lewis.

    What Went Down

    Amber Iman, who co-founded the Broadway Advocacy Coalition hosted the event. The BAC event coincided with Juneteenth. The website for the event states that in addition to honoring Henry and Lewis, Broadway VS serves “as a space for Black theater artists to celebrate not just these two men but the many Black men who have led the way for so many others.”
