At this year's Staten Island Economic Development Corporation's (SIEDC) annual conference, Broadway Stages was recognized as one of the top 31 growing companies in the borough. Gina Argento, Broadway Stages' President and CEO, received the award on behalf of the company.
"We've put our heart and soul into our Staten Island campus in Arthur Kill and are excited to see the growth that it's bringing to the community," said Gina. "We are proud to be a member of the SIEDC and a part of the Charleston community."
In 2017 Broadway Stages acquired the 69-acre campus in Arthur Kill, located in the Charleston section of Staten Island. Today, it's being designed as a full-service production facility offering ample space for film, television, and music video productions of all sizes.
