The Broadway League’s 26th annual spring road conference opened on Tuesday in New York with a special dedication to late DCPA President Randy Weeks, who died last Oct. 9 at age 59. The conference has gathered nearly 1,000 producers, presenters and staff from Broadway touring markets around the country.

Here was the opening statement from Al Nocciolino, President of NAC Entertainment:

“Today I have the privilege of dedicating this conference to Randy Weeks. Randy was president of the Denver Center, and he was responsible for its Broadway series for many, many years. He was an active, engaged member of the Broadway League. He served on the Board of Governors, our executive committee, and also as one of our conference co-chairs. He was a very, very important part of our industry. But more important, Randy turned Denver into one of the most important theatre cities in America. Numerous tours chose Denver to open because of what Randy and his staff were able to do. It is one of the great, great theatre towns in America. We will always remember Randy, but if he could get a message to me right now, he would say, ‘Al: Tell them they are looking good, congratulations … and get on with it.’ So we are going to get on with it. But please remember our friend, Randy Weeks, and we dedicate this conference to him.”
