PRODUCING FOR BROADWAY  / AR504
Alia Jones-Harvey, an Olivier Award winning producer, joined Front Row Productions eight years ago to bring classic works featuring actors of color to the Broadway stage. In her Broadway debut, she co-produced the first African American revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the biggest grossing play on Broadway in spring 2008, featuring James Earl Jones, Phylicia Rashad, Terrence Howard, Anika Noni Rose and director, Debbie Allen. Jones-Harvey also co-produced the play in London, yielding record- breaking numbers of a new audience to the West End, which lauded the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Revival of a Play. Her next production, A Street Car Named Desire, directed by Emily Mann, with original music by Terence Blanchard, completed its 16-week run on Broadway featuring Blair Underwood, Nicole Ari Parker, Daphne Rubin-Vega and Wood Harris. She has most recently produced The Trip to Bountiful, for which Cicely Tyson won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, and Romeo & Juliet starring Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad.
