In addition, James Lapine will be presented with the inaugural TDF Founders Award.
TDF will hold its 50th anniversary gala at Gotham Hall on Monday, June 18, and as part of the festivities, the nonprofit theater organization will honor Tony Kushner, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright whose groundbreaking Angels in America is currently receiving its first Broadway revival with the National Theatre production at the Neil Simon Theatre.
In addition, James Lapine will be presented with the inaugural TDF Founders Award, which is being created, according to a press release, "to honor individuals and organizations who have demonstrated a deep commitment to TDF and its mission, and who embody TDF's vision of a world where the transformative experience of attending live theatre and dance is essential, relevant, accessible and inspirational."
The funds raised at TDF's 50th anniversary gala will provide support for the organization's wide range of programs serving theatergoers and theater-makers.
