The Shubert Organization has added three new members to its Artistic Circle Initiative, which seeks to aid BIPOC producers developing shows Off-Broadway and on.
Last year, Shubert supported five producers who all developed an impressive range of work. This year’s program includes the newly announced Alex Robertson, Amy Marie Haven, and Jamie Joeyen-Waldorf. The program will continue through March 2024.
New York City-based producer, actor, and creative Alexander's Broadway co-producing credits include A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical and the 2022 revival of The Piano Lesson, while his Off-Broadway credits include Kinky Boots and Fairycakes. Alexander's upcoming producing projects include The Show on the Roof with a book by Tom Ford and music and lyrics by Alex Syiek. He is a member of the 2022 Theatre Producers of Color cohort.
Producer and director Haven joined the producing team of Broadway's The Music Man in 2021 after being awarded the Black Theatre Coalition's Producing Fellowship. She currently serves as Creative Development Manager for Michael Cassel Group, whose Broadway credits include Almost Famous, Into the Woods, Pretty Woman, and MJ and international credits The Lion King, Hamilton, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, & Juliet, and Mary Poppins.
Joeyen-Waldorf is a New York City-based, Asian American producer, who founded JW Theatrical to serve artists and theatre lovers through a people-centric approach. Recent Broadway producing credits include A Doll's House, The Kite Runner, and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune (Tony nomination), while other producing credits include The Secret Garden (Center Theatre Group) and A Commercial Jingle for Regina Comet (DR2). Current developmental collaborations include Salem with Kira Stone, Immigrants' Love Stories with Penny Pun, and The Chosen One with Eli Cohen.
