The Broadway Green Alliance and the Broadway League announced that Disney Theatrical Productions is the recipient of the 2019 Green Broadway Award, which honors an individual, show, or organization for outstanding achievement in making Broadway more environmentally friendly.
Disney received the award in recognition of its work to become greener both in New York (in its offices and in productions) and on the road. Watch the video above that details Disney’s green achievements.
“Like so many producers in the Broadway community, we at DTP are committed to finding new ways to produce and run our shows to align with higher environmental standards,” said Thomas Schumacher, president and producer Disney Theatrical Productions, in a statement. “Our casts, crews, musicians and staff proudly engage in these efforts and we look forward to discovering even more ways to innovate.”
“Under Tom Schumacher’s leadership, Disney has created an environment that encourages and enables a diverse group to express their individual commitments to greener theatre. The result has been a host of small actions that have a large cumulative effect,” added Charlie Deull, co-chair of the BGA.
Previous recipients of the Green Broadway Award include Jujamcyn Theaters in 2015 and producer David Stone in 2017.
