Time Magazine has released its 2019 list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and several theater veterans appear.

Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage makes the list, with an appraisal written by Martha Plimpton, who stars in the new London production of Nottage's drama Sweat. "She brings a sense of curiosity to all sorts of subjects and a clear eye to notoriously difficult parts of American culture and society," Plimpton notes in an essay you can read here.

Stage vets who made the list also include two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (Smart People), Emilia Clarke (Breakfast at Tiffany's), Tony winner Glenn Close (Sunset Boulevard), Ariana Grande (13), Hasan Minhaj (Homecoming King), and Sandra Oh (Stop Kiss).
