Winners of Outstanding Lighting, Outstanding Direction, and Outstanding Production of a New Play (Planet Connections Theater Festivity 2012), duo Ashley J. Jacobson and Elizabeth Sarkady have been praised for their tenacity in fostering a community of diverse artists. We're just happy they continue surprising us with their productions. Jacobson and Sarkady recently brought the voices of Detroit to New York City in Detroit, NY. (Read our interview with Sarkady here.)
