Jon Stewart (“The Daily Show”) delivered the keynote address, stating about live theatre: “Why am I here? Here’s why…I can sit. And turn next to the person next to me and say ‘That was wonderful.'”

Presentations, speeches and discussions followed with (from L to R): Tyne Daly and Bobby Steggert of “Mothers & Sons”, Chicago actress Jessie Mueller of “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical”, Audra McDonald, Idina Menzel and the creative team of “If/Then”, the creative team of Bullets Over Broadway, Bryan Cranston of “All the Way”. A performance from “Aladdin” with stars Adam Jacobs and Courtney Reed took place as well.

A fantastic time was had by all attendees and we’re excited to see some of these shows hit the road and come to Chicago in the future!
