Meet the BroadwayWorld Staff- Photographer Jessica Fallon Gordon
BroadwayWorld would be nothing without its ever-growing staff of dedicated writers, reviewers, interviewers, photographers and videographers that help keep you informed about everything that happens on Broadway and beyond. The BroadwayWorld team makes magic happen every day of the week and we want you to get to know the individuals who are responsible for it.
Below, we continue our 'Meet the Staff' series by profiling our photographer Jessica Fallon Gordon!
Name: Jessica Fallon Gordon
Years with BroadwayWorld: One
First Broadway show: FOSSE...and I fell asleep! I was 10 years old on my first trip to New York. My family and I had just flown in that day from Florida and I was exhausted. I am a dancer and I now kick myself for not staying awake.
Favorite show: It literally changes from day to day! But THOROGHLY MODERN MILLIE will always have a special place in my heart. MILLIE made me realize I wanted to be a part of the New York theatre community- it was a true life changer! I saw it on Broadway with Sutton Foster 5 times (reunion concert please?!). Some other favorites include SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA, RAGTIME, 42ND STREET.... I could go on and on...
Listening to now: I cannot get enough of Carole King's 'Tapestry' at the moment. I'm obsessed with BEAUTIFUL and think Jessie Mueller is giving the performance of a lifetime. There are plans for a cast recording, right? Because I just want to listen to her jamming out to the title song on repeat.
Favorite site feature: I joined Broadwayworld.com when it was first created 10 years ago to read the message boards. I still have the boards bookmarked on my laptop and pretty much check every day.
Favorite article/piece you've done: I feel like I haven't been around long enough to have a favorite! Perhaps photographing the 2013 Tony Award nominees at the top of the Empire State Building. That was a pretty surreal moment for me.
Favorite thing about being a part of BroadwayWorld: I love knowing that I am part of a team that is truly passionate about theatre. There are theatre lovers around the world that might not be able to get to New York to see a Broadway show and I hope that the work we do makes them feel a little closer to the Broadway community.
