Has an Increase in Diverse Shows Attracted a More Diverse Audience? (Part 2)
Friday 7/8, 2022 at 5:00 eastern time
In the room: Toni Isreal, Founder and CEO and Cherine Anderson, Director of Marketing & Media Relations for RealEmN Productions, specializing in the promotion of multicultural film, television and theater projects with an emphasis on BIPOC voices. Recent credits: For Colored Girls..., Little Girl Blue, Hadestown, MJ, Paradise Square, Pass Over, Jagged Little Pill. With the goal of promoting arts and entertainment to multicultural communities and delivering experiences that encourage diverse audiences to tune in, RealEmN has been busy in this post-COVID season of BIPOC voices on Broadway. Will this season's conscious effort to bring more diverse voices to the stage have a lasting effect? Has it changed the makeup of the commercial Broadway audience? Do this year's Tony Awards indicate a genuine step forward for diversity and inclusion?
