The Actors’ Equity Association’s Extraordinary Excellence in Diversity on Broadway Award for the 2015-16 theatrical season went to the productions of Hamilton, Waitress and the revival of Spring Awakening. The ceremony was carried out July 28 at Equity’s Times Square headquarters.
The statement released by the AEA said that “the award honors shows that exemplify and promote the union’s founding principles of diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity for all who work in the theatre.”
All the recipients of the award highlighted the importance of having equality on stage, as well as talent and that one does not exclude the other.
We are more than glad that these talented cast are on Brodway today and we hope that they make the way future actors to come.
