Presented by the Theatre Hall of Fame, the annual luncheon honored Lansbury for her return to the stage in Deuce, which co-stars fellow Tony winner Seldes. The afternoon at the New York Friars club also featured the presentation of the Seldes-Kanin Fellowships to actress Jennifer Mudge, playwright David Adjmi and the songwriting team of Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich.

The fellowships are $1,000 grants given to emerging theatre artists who "have been active in the New York theatre for a minimum [of] five years, and [have] demonstrated the ability to pursue the theatre as their career." This year's selection committee included Seldes, Terrence McNally and Jerry Herman.
