Tony Award-winning director Harold Prince is the master of ceremonies for the 2012 Broadway Salutes event, celebrating the professionals working on Broadway's stages and behind the scenes, which takes place Sept. 20 at the Times Square Visitors Center.
Presented by the The Broadway League and Coalition of Broadway Unions and Guilds, the event "recognizes the myriad of artists, technicians, and craftspeople who have made Broadway great for decades."
