The event will be held at Webster Hall (125 East 11th Street in Manhattan) and will be hosted by performers Lisa Kron and Marga Gomez. Tony Award-winning actress Phylicia Rashad will present the award. Rashad won a Tony Award for her performance in Raisin in the Sun, which Binder produced. Binder's other credits as a producer include Hedwig and the Angry Inch and De La Guarda, which both had long runs Off-Broadway.
Last season, Binder's revival of Raisin, starring Sean Combs, was one of the solid commercial hits of the Broadway season.
