Stephen Sondheim better clear a space on his mantelpiece. On Monday, Dec. 15, he'll receive yet another award: a Lifetime Achievement honor from New York Magazine. As reported by syndicated columnist Liz Smith, TV's Conan O'Brien will host the festivities at NYC's Whitney Museum. Sondheim, composer of Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music and Passion, isn't the only theatre notable to be honored that night. Marc Anthony, star of the upcoming Capeman, will also get a New York Award (dedicated to folks who contribute to the quality of life in NYC), as will director Mark Brokaw. Mary-Louise Parker will present the latter award, since Brokaw directed her in How I Learned To Drive. Tito Puente will present the award to Marc Anthony.

Comedienne/performance artist Sandra Bernhard, currently Off-Broadway in a one-woman show, will present an award to the founders of the first NY International Fringe Festival (which took place this summer), while musician/performance artist Laurie Anderson will bestow an award on the interactive teen magazine, gURL.com.

Other, non-theatrical winners include Deborah Wright, leader of the Harlem Empowerment Zone and and author Sebastian Junger, who'll receive his honor from television weatherman, Mr. G.
