He has worked with us to provide the best of Broadway to our patrons which along with the theatre restoration and support from our staff and volunteers has allowed Shea’s to become one of the top one-week Broadway markets in the country. His work has had a great effect on Broadway and Buffalo, and he is very deserving of this industry recognition.” -next page- DISTINGUISHED LIFETIME SERVICE AWARD ALBERT NOCCIOLINO serves as President & CEO of NAC Entertainment, Ltd., a diversified entertainment and theatrical company specializing in the presentation of National Touring Broadway shows in New York State (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, Elmira, Utica and Albany) and the State of Pennsylvania (Scranton and Erie). In addition to directing the Broadway subscription season in these cities, Mr. Nocciolino is also involved in the producing and co-producing of National Touring Broadway shows and Broadway shows in New York. Albert has been a Tony® Voter since 1982 and most recently served as the Co-Chair of the Intra-Industry / Road Presenters Committee and Vice Chair of the Road of The Broadway League, a founding member and Chairman of the National Touring Theatre Council, and is past President of the Independent Presenters Network (IPN). He was elected to the Broadway League’s Board of Governors in 1994 and currently serves on the following committees: Executive Committee, Road Presenters/Intra-Industry Committee, Finance Committee, Governance Committee, Government Committee, and Membership Committee. “There is no road member who has been involved in as many leadership positions and committees as our immediate past Vice Chairman, Al Nocciolino,” says Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. “Al was Vice Chair of the Road for years and his passion and dedication to this organization is simply spectacular. He is a one-of-akind member who makes a difference in everything that he does for the business of Broadway nationwide.” “Broadway is a vital national industry. League members worked tirelessly this season to bring Broadway shows to over 200 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Touring Broadway contributes $3.2 billion to local economies across the U.S. Coupled with the $12.6 billion dollar economic impact for New York City, it is clear that Broadway and Touring Broadway Series create real value to our country’s economy,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. “We couldn’t do it without the enormous support that our awardees, the donors and volunteers – both corporate and private give to promote and enrich the Broadway Series in their hometowns.” # # # THE BROADWAY LEAGUE (Charlotte St. Martin, President), founded in 1930, is the national trade association for the Broadway industry.
