Host Estelle Parsons, honorees, presenters, and the League of Professional Theatre Women had a blast at this year’s LPTW Awards Celebration & Big Mingle at the Pershing Square Signature Theatre Center on Monday, May 2nd, 2016!

Honoring Micki Grant, Jane Cox, Lear deBessonet, Lisa Kron (also representing Jeanine Tesori), Ari Laura Kreith, and Elsa Rael, the night was a celebration of both historical theatre and LPTW history. Many were in tears more than once from the beauty of these women whose lives have had such an impact on the theatrical community.
