On occasion, the awards bestow a Special Theatre World Award on "performers, casts or others who have made a particularly lasting impression on the New York theatre scene," as stated on the website.


    This year's winners were chosen by a panel that included Playbill's own Harry Haun, Peter Filichia (Theatremania), Matthew Murray (Talkin' Broadway), Frank Scheck (The New York Post), Michael Sommers (The Star Ledger), Doug Watt (The New York Daily News) and Linda Winer (New York Newsday).
