Wilson's widow, Constanza Romero, was also part of the festivities that honored the late two-time Pulitzer Prize winner in New York City's Bryant Park.

The day-long tribute featured a performance of the rarely-heard Wilson poetic monologue, "Janitor"; a special post-show celebration at the evening performance of Radio Golf at the Cort Theatre; and post-show curtain speeches at regional theatres nationwide.
