As this has been my first season covering Broadway for Times Square Chronicles I would like to express my gratitude to the Chronicles for the opportunity. Thank you to all the Actors and Actresses, Creative & Production team for posing and patience on all the Red Carpets. Thank you to the Theatre personal for ushering all of us photographers in and around your houses. I would also like to take a minute and say a huge THANK YOU to all the Broadway Photographers that I had the chance to work alongside this season as most of you have been extremely welcoming, helpful, professional and polite. To those Broadway photogs that will be covering the Tony's on Sunday -- I wish Good Luck & Good Light.
