The Hollywood Reporter says that the former talk-show host will receive the Trevor Life Award at the sixth annual A Cracked X-Mas. O'Donnell will be presented with the award for her work in "children's advocacy and gay issues."
The evening will feature musical and comedy performances and will benefit the Trevor Project, which promotes help and tolerance for gay youth. The non-profit organization was created by the filmmakers of the Academy Award-winning short "Trevor."
The O'Donnell-produced Taboo — featuring a score by Boy George and a new book by Charles Busch — begins previews at the Plymouth Theatre Oct. 24 prior to an official opening Nov. 13. Tickets, priced between $80 and $100, are available through Telecharge, (212) 239 6200. For more information about the musical, visit www.tabooonbroadway.com.
