HOT STORY OF THE WEEK
once

A4D'S AMY JORDAN KNOWS THE POWER OF 'THANK YOU'
 
A4D member Amy Jordan sets a high bar when it comes to saying ‘Thank You’ – Whether it’s a grand gesture or simply a kind word, she's quick to acknowledge the giver… She also writes thank you notes on actual paper and mails them? Who even does that these days? In a word: Amy.

Amy oozes gratefulness for her friendship with Chita Rivera who very deservedly was awarded the 2018 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement this week. It’s a friendship that began when Ms. Rivera was the recipient of an award from Amy’s dance company: The Victory Dance Project 2017 Woman of Valor.

The minute Amy saw her friend’s Tony acceptance speech, she immediately took to Facebook to acknowledge this great achievement and thank Chita once again for their friendship. Amy shared on her page: Chita said it and we agree, ‘Theatre is Life!’

And again this week, we were thrilled to see A4D friend Camille A. Brown’s Once On This Island, that she choreographed, win the 2018 Tony for Best Revival of a Musical. She shared how great it was to hear Producer Ken Davenport publicly acknowledge her during his acceptance speech that was filled with ‘thank you’s’:

‘To our designers, to Camille Brown, our choreographer. To every single one of co-producers and investors who put money into this show, people who support the theater are the reason we all have a job, thank you so much. To the cast who performs tirelessly on that sand eight times a week, thank you…'

Two simple, but powerful words that even have a page on A4D dedicated to them! After a recent Member Meet-Up, Brandon Hudson took a moment to thank Grover Dale and Suzy Miller for the great afternoon. It inspired Suzy to reflect on the importance of showing gratitude.

Think of someone who's helped you along your path… Maybe today’s a good day to say thank you and let them know they’ve made a difference. And by the way, THANK YOU for reading this! We hope it inspires you to thank someone too!
