In announcing the guest of honor, Joyce Kulhawik, president of the BTCA, stated, "We stand in awe of Mary Louise Wilson's talent and achievements, and applaud her enduring career as a Tony- and Drama Desk Award-winning actress, singer, comedienne, author, teacher, star of her just released documentary, She’s the Best Thing in It, and her tour-de-force performance as Letitia Peabody Primrose in last year's Broadway revival of On the Twentieth Century. It is an honor to honor her!"
