About League Membership

Download Our Membership Guide

The Broadway League is the trade association of the Broadway industry. As such, the League oversees and promotes the common interests of its membership — theatre owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers of Broadway and Touring Broadway productions, as well as theatrical suppliers, restaurateurs, shipping and freight companies, booking agents, travel agents, designers, ticketing agents, and hotel managers. The League works to increase interest in commercial theatre throughout North America, strives to foster a sense of community among all members, and develops programs addressing the unique needs of its members.

Theatre owners/operators, producers, presenters, and general managers of Broadway theatre in New York or in connection with a Broadway series elsewhere in North America are eligible to apply for Associate Membership.

Individuals who provide goods or services to the theatre industry (e.g. suppliers, restaurateurs, booking agents, travel agents, designers, ticketing agents, and hotel managers) may apply for Affiliate Membership.
