And the winners of the 2014-2015 Broadway Marketing Awards are . . .

You guys love you some marketing.

I don’t know what it was, but we had a record number of votes for this year’s Broadway Marketing Awards . . . and I’m not talking about just a few more than last year.  Oh no, we’re talking hundreds more.

But I’m so glad you turned out for these web prizes, because Broadway Marketers are a bunch of hard workin’ folks that get none of the reward when shows go right, and all of the blame when they go wrong.  (In fact, I don’t know which is worse . . . being a Broadway Marketer, or being a Broadway Book Writer!)

You guys have a soft spot for those marketers, though, because you came out and showed them some love with your votes.  And now it’s time to announce the winners!  (Who, in addition to braggin’ rights, will also get a fancy certificate . . . oohhhhh.)

And now . . . the winners of this year’s Broadway Marketing Awards are (in blue) . . .
