Earlier this evening, the future of Broadway congregated on the main stage of Curtain Up! as alumni of the Jimmy Awards returned to perform classics of Broadway old and new. Host Jelani Alladin of Hercules and Frozen fame welcomed fans and ushered in a new era for the Great White Way.  The concert featured performances from Bryson Battle, John Clay III, Sofia Deler, Caitlin Finnie, Elena Holder, Lily Kaufmann, McKenzie Kurtz, Sam Primack, Josh Strobl, and Ekele Ukegbu.

This summer, we spoke with 2021 Winner’s Battle and Holder to chat about taking home the crown at this year’s virtual awards. For that interview, click here

Check out photos from the Reunion Concert as we all celebrate Broadway’s return.
