Hedgerow Theatre is delighted to announce that it has received six nominations for the Best of Philadelphia awards presented by BroadwayWorld.com, including three for its critically acclaimed production of Macbeth.

“Over the past year, I’ve watched our online presence soar on various social media sites,” explained Rebecca Cureton, Hedgerow’s Marketing Coordinator, who also played Lady MacDuff and a witch in Macbeth. “It’s great to see our patrons support and help promote us on these platforms, and we’re thrilled that this opportunity was available on BroadwayWorld.com.”
Associate Artistic Director Jared Reed agreed with Cureton, saying “We are pleased as punch to be part of the Broadway World Awards. We are very proud of our accomplishments this year and look forward to all theatre patrons being given the opportunity to vote for the theatres, productions, and artists that have chosen to join in the Broadway World Awards. This is a wonderful chance to celebrate the fantastic theatre that is happening in the entire Philadelphia region.”
