Founded by Julia Jordan, Marsha Norman and Theresa Rebeck, the Lilly Awards were started in spring 2010 as a way to honor the work of women in the American theatre. The awards are named for Lillian Hellman, a pioneering American playwright who said, "You need to write like the devil and act like one when necessary."

Birdland is located at 315 W. 44th Street in NYC. Tickets range from $50 to $250 and can be purchased at thelillyawards.org or artful.ly.
