Broadway Plus Acquires Artists & Beyond
Consolidation of Two Industry-Leading Platforms Creates Database of Over 500 Broadway Artists Available for Meetings, Coaching, Virtual Concerts, and More
NEW YORK, N.Y. (February 5, 2021) – Broadway Plus is pleased to announce the acquisition of Artists & Beyond, Inc. Both companies grew exponentially in 2020 by adapting previously-existing business models for the new virtual Broadway landscape. The merger represents the consolidation of the two foremost industry leaders in online booking for Broadway artists and professionals. In 2020, the two companies paid out a combined $750,000 to Broadway artists left mostly unemployed by the industry shutdown.
“By joining forces, we streamline the booking process for both our artists and fans, reducing friction and helping us get to the good stuff: connecting with one another,” said Nathaniel Hill, Founder, and President of Broadway Plus. With the merger, the Broadway Plus platform offers online booking for over 500 Broadway artists with over 200 Tony Award Nominations, helping hundreds of fans around the world connect with Broadway stars every week.
“I’ve admired Artists & Beyond since I first discovered it,” Hill continued. “Tyce Green is a visionary entrepreneur who built a great service. He shares my passion for the Broadway industry, the artists who bring it to life and spreading joy through connection. I built Broadway Plus to serve the VIP experience market, so Tyce’s decade of experience in the complementary-but-different education sector enables us to expand Broadway Plus to millions more at a more accessible price. It’s an honor to work with Tyce and his team to merge and solidify the new Broadway Plus as the undisputed industry leader in online booking for Broadway artists.”
