Alia Jones-Harvey

Alia Jones-Harvey is an Olivier Award Winning and Tony-nominated producer, and partner at Front Row Productions, a production company devoted to bringing classic works performed by actors of color to the Broadway stage. Along with her partner and the founder of Front Row, Stephen C. Byrd, she stands as one of the only two African American lead producers on Broadway. 

Jones-Harvey made her Broadway debut in 2008, co-producing the first-ever African American revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. In 2012, Byrd and Jones-Harvey brought a multiracial adaptation of A Streetcar Named Desire, to Broadway. Byrd and Jones-Harvey then teamed up for The Trip to Bountiful, which enjoyed a successful run in 2013, and the duo followed up with a Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet.

Front Row partnered with The Public Theater to produce Eclipsed, and will be bringing the critically-acclaimed production to Broadway’s Golden Theatre in 2016. They are currently developing Black Orpheus, a re-telling of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice set in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival.
