Broadway embraces inclusion & Randi Zuckerberg takes two tonys!
Congratulations to two ground-breaking Broadway productions and to Randi Zuckerberg, the Co-Producer they have in common. Hadestown is the winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best New Musical, bringing with it Tony Awards for Lead Producer Mara Isaacs, Best Direction of a Musical for Rachel Chavkin, Best Score for Anais Mitchell, and Best Sound Design for Jessica Paz. Ms Paz is also the first women in Tonys history to be nominated in the category, let alone win. Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! is the winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, bringing with it Tony Awards for Lead Producer Eva Price and Best Featured Actress in a Musical for Ali Stroker. Ms Stroker is also the first person who uses a wheelchair to win a Tony Award in any category.
What do these two ground-breaking productions have in common? Zuckerberg Media CEO Randi Zuckerberg has dedicated her career to changing the face of leadership in the world’s most prominent industries. As Co-Producer of both productions, Randi became a champion for change on Broadway and won two Tony Awards in the process. We could not be more thankful to the deal-makers and staff at Zuckerberg Media who helped build and maintain these relationships. And we could not be more proud of Randi Zuckerberg, our forever Crusader-in-Chief.

Randi's Latest Book
