Grey will be presented with the NCTF Theatre Artist Award by director and choreographer of Anything Goes, Kathleen Marshall.

"The achievements of our honorees are signal to the American theatre scene today," said Bruce Whitacre, NCTF executive director, in a statement. "[Grey's] performances time and again show us what it is to be human, to be alive, in the most vital way."
