Stephen C. Byrd
ABOUT THE EVENT CHAIR ... STEPHEN C. BYRD | Mr. Byrd formed Front Row Productions, Inc. which is dedicated solely to producing quality theatrical productions, and has a slate of major theatrical projects in the works. As the Producer of the first African American Broadway production of Tennessee Williams' CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, which was the biggest grossing Play on Broadway in 2008, he subsequently transferred the Production to London's West End, where he replicated the same success as the only African American Producer to ever win the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for The Best Revival of A Play. Byrd and his producing Partner Ms. Alia Jones have brought the Pulitzer Prize winning A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE to Broadway last year 2012 for another successful run on Broadway, and are preparing to take it to London's West End for the Spring of 2013. Additionally, Byrd and Jones are part of the A TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL producing team. Byrd and Jones are planning on future productions in both Brazil and South Africa.

Along with her partner and the founder of Front Row, Stephen C. Byrd, she proudly stands as one of the only two African American lead producers on Broadway.
At Front Row we are immensely performance-driven and focused on results for our investors, and the fact that my partner Stephen and I approach this industry from a business background provides us with a financially-informed perspective when we are working to market our shows." In 2012, Byrd and Jones-Harvey brought a multiracial adaptation of Tennessee Williams' classic, A Streetcar Named Desire, to Broadway for a successful run that garnered rave reviews and a Tony nomination. Byrd and Jones-Harvey then teamed up to produce Horton Foote's The Trip to Bountiful, which enjoyed a successful run on Broadway in 2013. The play debuted at The Public Theater as a result of the generous support of Alia and her partner Stephen Byrd. Following its sold-out engagement at The Public Theater, Byrd and Jones-Harvey will now be bringing the critically-acclaimed production of Eclipsed to Broadway's Golden Theatre, for first preview on February 23, 2016. Byrd and Jones-Harvey are currently in development of a new musical for Broadway -Black Orpheus. Stephen C. Byrd
