Broadway Stages Congratulates NYWIFT and Designing Women Honorees 2017 With Amy Schumer, David Costabile, Rosario Dawson, and Variety Magazine!

Broadway Stages would love to give a big shoutout to the lovely presenters Rosario Dawson, Krysten Ritter, David Costabile, Carmen Ejogo, and Amy Schumer and a big round of applause to New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) Designing Women honorees Sarit Klein, Pamela May, Stephanie Maslansky, and the rest of the Jessica Jones team for their exceptional work! Congratulations on a well-deserved award and long overdue recognition for your individual commitments and sacrifices to make Jessica Jones happen. 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 as celebrities came together to celebrate the achievements of outstanding women in the film and television industry. The event recognizes the many hours of hard work that go into designing the minute details of an on-screen character's hair, makeup, and clothes. The artists behind these details often create the personality of characters as much as the actors and actresses playing them. Actress Krysten Ritter, who plays Jessica Jones, agrees that the tremendous efforts by Designing Women honorees truly breathe life into the characters on the big screen.

After the ceremony, NYWIFT members shared their incredible energy with attendees, discussing the amazing work of the Jessica Jones team and the impressive teamwork that goes into a production like Jessica Jones. To top off the night, the Jessica Jones team shared funny and embarrassing behind-the-scenes stories that led to laughter for the whole crowd in attendance.

Once again, Broadway Stages would like to thank NYWIFT for sharing this incredible night with us, and we hope to be back again soon!
