Playbill has you covered with some of the sights you would have experienced live in Times Square with a virtual tour of the installations comprising the event.

Curtain Up! is produced by Playbill, in partnership with The Broadway League, the Times Square Alliance, and presented by title sponsor Prudential; sponsored in part by Lexus, Netflix, and United Airlines; with additional support from Audible.

The Mainstage on Duffy Square
From the kick-off concert, hosted by Norm Lewis and Michael Urie with performances from Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Vosk, to the finale concert, hosted by Jelani Aladdin and featuring performances and appearances from over 23 of this season's Broadway shows, the Mainstage was where it was at! These boards also hosted the ¡Viva! Broadway When We See Ourselves concert, the Black to Broadway – It’s “Play” Time! panel, the Jimmy Awards Reunion Concert!, and the “Dear White People” Discussion panel presented by Netflix.
