The Television Host, Appearing on Broadway This Summer as Matron “Mama” Morton in Broadway’s Chicago, Will Honor Theater’s Biggest Stars on Sunday, May 5, 2013.
April 18, 2013 (New York, NY) — Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams, who recently announced that she will take on the role of this summer, is already adding another theater credit to her resume.
The outgoing and quick-witted TV personality has been named to host the 2013 Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards, which honor the best of The Great White Way, all hand-picked by Broadway’s biggest fans, on Sunday, May 5th at The Allen Room in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, Time Warner Center, New York City.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Broadway community this year both on stage and as a host for the 2013 Audience Choice Awards,” said Williams.
“We in the entertainment industry understand the value of our fans, so to be hosting a show that is based entirely on their votes is something I am really looking forward to!”
Williams follows in the footsteps of Broadway vets, and Audience Choice Award-winners, Darren Criss, Daniel Radcliffe and Vanessa Williams, who have all previously taken on the role of host for this event. Williams might even have the chance to claim one of these coveted awards at next years’ ceremony, as the show touts a unique “Favorite Replacement” category.
GO head Wendy Girl!
