Stroman was presented with the 2018 Oscar Hammerstein Award for Lifetime Achievement in Musical Theatre, and Wallerstein was honored with the York Theatre Company Founders’ Award.
“It seems highly appropriate—and high time—that we honor Susan Stroman with this year’s Oscar Hammerstein Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Musical Theatre,” said York Producing Artistic Director James Morgan in an earlier statement. “Adding it to her impressive list of accolades just seems to make perfect sense. We are delighted to welcome her to The York’s family with the 27th OH Award and look forward to celebrating her—and her extraordinary career—in high style."
