Lin-Manuel Miranda, Aaron Tveit, and more came out to celebrate at the Eugene O’Neill Center’s 2019 Monte Cristo Award Gala at the Edison Ballroom April 22.

During the annual fundraising gala, the theatre honored Tony Award-winning playwright and screenwriter John Logan with the Monte Cristo Award, given each year to a theatre artist whose work has had an extraordinary impact on American theatre.

“John Logan represents the finest in American storytelling. As a playwright and screenwriter, John creates singular and transformative stories that touch our common humanity. It is a particular delight to honor one of our artists this year, and one who has such broad impact on American culture,” said O’Neill Executive Director Preston Whiteway in a statement.
