The award, which carries a $50,000 prize, was created in honor of Fred Ebb (one half of the Kander and Edd duo that wrote Cabaret and Chicago, among other well-known musicals) to "recognize excellence in musical theatre songwriting by a lyricist, composer, or songwriting team that has not yet achieved significant commercial success." At left, Hal Prince, Sheldon Harnick, Chita Rivera and John Kander are seen after the ceremony.
