The grant, totaling $10,000, will be presented on Tuesday, March 27 at a private event in New York City that will feature special performances from the musical, which is based on Kate Davis' award-winning documentary about transgender friends in rural Georgia. This year's recipients were selected by Mark Hollmann and Robert Lopez.
The Jonathan Larson Grant is given annually to honor emerging composers, lyricists and book writers, help to continue Tony Award-winning composer Jonathan Larson's dream of infusing musical theatre with a contemporary, joyful, urban vitality. The American Theatre Wing awards the Larson Grants to artists to recognize and showcase their work with no strings attached - except to put it to the best use possible to help further the artist's creative endeavors.
