Katrina Lenk (Indecent, The Band’s Visit) received the 9th Annual Dorothy Loudon Award for Excellence in the Theater. She spoke of her high school teacher and the skills and discipline he instilled in her. My favorite story was of a death circle where actors learned to say good-bye to the show they just finished.

Glenn Close

Glenn Close

Glenn Close (Sunset Boulevard) received the 5th Annual John Willis Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. Presenting her award was her ex flame Len Cariou who she guessed about how they use to send love notes through the streets. Ms. Close was warm, engaging and down to earth as she told of her days on the stage.

Dave Molloy (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) was honored with a Special Theatre World Award in recognition for his Broadway debut as composer, writer, lyricist, orchestrator, and actor.

First presented in 1945, the prestigious Theatre World Awards, founded by John Willis, the Editor-in-Chief of both Theatre World and its companion volume, Screen World, are the oldest awards given for Outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway Debut Performances. The Theatre World Awards are presented annually at the end of the theatre season to six actors and six actresses for their significant, reviewable, debut performances in a Broadway or Off-Broadway production. The ceremony is a private, invitation-only event followed by a party to celebrate the new honorees and welcome them to the Theatre World “family.” In what has become a highly entertaining and often touching tradition, 12 previous winners serve as the presenters, and often relive moments from past ceremonies and share wonderful stories rarely heard at other theatrical awards.
