The Tonys Are Using Facebook to Reach Theater Enthusiasts

The Tony Awards have launched a Facebook campaign inviting theater fans to send in their own videos answering the question, “What does Broadway mean to you?” Fans can “like” their favorite videos, and some of the top selections will appear on the TonyAwards.com website.
