Inside Broadway will honor 2014 Tony Award nominees Anika Noni Rose (A Raisin in the Sun) and Andy Karl (Rocky) as well as the Broadway production of All the Way at the Broadway Beacon Awards on June 23 at The Essex House.

The event will feature performances by the Broadway cast of Jersey Boys and a performance by students from P.S. 97 in Brooklyn. Neil Mazzella, chairman of Hudson Scenic Studio and Hudson Sound and Light, and Stephen Batta, general manager of the JW Marriott Essex House, will also be honored.

Presser established Inside Broadway in 1982. The organization reaches over 20,000 New York City students each year and develops and produces touring equity musical productions as well as a wide range of educational programs.
