The 7 PM reception to award the Medal of Honor for Theatre/Drama was followed by dinner at 7:30 PM and tributes and presentations at 8:45 PM.

Maysles, with his late brother David, created the 1975 documentary "Grey Gardens" upon which the Broadway musical is based. The evening honored Maysles along with the creative team of the new musical: librettist Doug Wright, composer Scott Frankel, lyricist Michael Korie and director Michael Greif. Joel Vig directed the evening, which included "tributes, stories and songs from members of the cast, the design team, and surprise guest stars [who] will [gave] rare behind-the-scenes glimpses into the Broadway experience."
