In its 10th year, NYMF’s Next Broadway Sensation combines a singing competition and master class to discover the stars of tomorrow and give them their big break today. The competition is open to any performer age 18+ who has not yet appeared on Broadway. The winner of the competition is awarded their own cabaret style showcase produced by NYMF!
From hundreds of auditionees, 20 contestants are chosen to compete in a series of performance heats, singing for a live audience and a panel of industry judges who provide guidance and feedback to the contestants. Past celebrity judges have included Jeremy Jordan, Jonathan Groff, Marc Shaiman, J. Robert Spencer, Tom Kitt, Andrea McArdle, Lucy Simon, and Gavin Creel, among others.
Contestants have gone on to appear in numerous Broadway shows, including Once, American Idiot, Newsies, The Last Ship, Phantom of the Opera, Hair, Les Miserables, South Pacific, West Side Story, and Violet. Last year’s winner, Kathryn Allison, recently made her Broadway debut in Aladdin.
