Broadway Stages would love to give a big shout out to the Sarit Klein, Pamela May, Stephanie Maslansky, and the rest of the Jessica Jones Team for their incredible work and exceptional quality of work! Congratulations on a well deserved award and long overdue recognition for your individual commitments and sacrifices to make Jessica Jones happen. Thank you to the lovely presenters Rosario Dawson, Krysten Ritter, David Costabile, Carmen Ejogo, and Amy Schumer. Broadway Stages is thankful for your continued dedication and your revolutionary contributions to the TV and Film industry.
The night was truly a one of a kind experience to come together and celebrate the achievements of outstanding woman in the film and television industry. The many hours of unnoticed intensive work going into the minute details in a on-screen character’s hair, makeup, and clothes all need to be recognized. The personality of a on-screen character is as much dependent on these small details as it is dependent on the actor or actress playing them. Krysten Ritter, who plays Jessica Jones, agrees that it is the tremendous efforts by Designing Women Honorees that truly breathe life into the characters on the big screen.
The ceremony followed with rounds of laughter and a night full of dance with NYWIFT members sharing their incredible energy with attendees. Conversations shared between members and attendee centered around the amazing works of the Jessica Jones team and the impressive teamwork that goes into a production like Jessica Jones. To tie off the night, the Jessica Jones team shared plenty of funny and embarrassing stories that happen behind the scenes that brought laughter to the whole crowd! The event was an extraordinary experience by NYWIFT!
Once again, Broadway Stages would like to thank the NYWIFT for sharing this incredible night with Broadway Stages and we hope to be back again soon!
