Broad Views on Broadway is a Music and Theatre company that strives to provide an enriching, nurturing environment for LGBTQIA+ and POC artists. We have held a mission of supporting emerging artists for over 6 years. Our goal as a company has been to produce new works in New York City and support their development in a form that can be shaped with each artist. BVOB seeks to broaden societal expectation on music and theatre productions by displaying original works by LGBTQIA+ and POC artists in varying stages by providing support to new development and artists. In the past, we’ve strived to produce 4 new works a year as well as subsidized classes and workshops. In the upcoming 5 years BVOB plans to expand to producing 4 Shows, 4 staged readings, 4 reading labs*, and Workshops for writers, actors, composers, and producers to further feed the industry with educated and developed art.
