Nathaniel started Broadway Plus in 2016 as the first and only company to fulfill and promote Official VIP experiences for Broadway shows, a distinction that holds true today. The company quickly gained the attention and support of the Broadway and luxury travel industries alike, as a much-needed link between the two. It has since grown into a category-defining one-stop-shop that offers a myriad of exciting ways for Broadway fans to connect with Broadway “beyond the ticket,” both virtually and live in New York City.
As a producer, Nathaniel lead-produced CLEOPATRA at Chelsea Music Hall, which played to critical acclaim and was described by The New York Times as “bootylicious.” Prior to founding Broadway Plus, he worked as a company manager, management associate, and intern on Broadway and Off-Broadway productions including Hamilton, Wicked, Sting’s The Last Ship, Next to Normal, Billy Elliot, and Ragtime. He has also worked for elite theatrical management and production companies including DR Theatrical, Baseline Theatrical, Serino/Coyne, and The Producing Office.
Nathaniel proudly serves on the Junior Board of the Make A Wish Foundation’s New York chapter, aiding the organization’s fundraising efforts and granting dozens of Broadway wishes each year.

Tyce Green is a true performer and entrepreneur combined.
As a performer, he’s toured with mega-hit bands: Heart, Air Supply, and Berlin, recorded a solo album with Grammy-Award winning songwriter Jim Steinman (Bat Out of Hell, Total Eclipse of the Heart, It’s All Coming Back to Me), and appeared on ABC’s American Idol. Tyce is also a runway model who’s appeared at New York Fashion Week and Project Runway on Bravo. Currently, he can be seen on tour as Annas in Jesus Christ Superstar.
As an entrepreneur, Tyce has built some of the most successful Broadway educational enterprises. At age 19, he started his first business, The Audition Consultant, providing tailored coaching expertise. The idea came during his freshman year of college, where, as the resident “musical theatre nerd,” he was known for having a wide knowledge of obscure repertoire. The seniors would go to him for song suggestions and he’d listen to them sing and immediately be able to suggest unique material. A few years into teaching, at age 22, Tyce was frustrated that he couldn’t play piano… so he taught himself!
As his acting career accelerated, he met and worked with esteemed Broadway stars, many of whom expressed their frustration with the lack of available teaching opportunities. Looking to fill this niche, Tyce combined his coaching and business skills into becoming an “educational agent” for Broadway performers under the company, Straight From New York. Continuing his work with educational institutes, he found many were hindered by budgets, so he founded Artists & Beyond, which provided not only educational services and artists, but also the consulting necessary for schools to recoup their “investments” on events.
After COVID in March of 2020, A&B pivoted to online booking, gaining a large following with lightning speed. This caught the attention of a certain competitor, and in 2021, Artists & Beyond merged with Broadway Plus, solidifying a groundbreaking industry partnership.
