Wagner, who designed the original Broadway production of Hair and earned Tony Awards for his work on The Producers, City of Angels and On the Twentieth Century, will receive the L.B. Tobin Award for Sustained Excellence in Theatrical Design.
Brown, whose first Broadway production was the 1967 production Marat/Sade, designed extensively for the Old Globe in San Diego. His colleague Albert Wolsky will accept the TDF/Irene Sharaff Lifetime Achievement Award on his behalf.
TDF will also honor costume designer Olivera Gajic with the TDF/Irene Sharaff Young Master Award, and theatre costume house Michael-John Costumes will be presented with the TDF/Irene Sharaff Artisan Award.
Founded in 1993, the awards pay tribute to the art of costume design and honor legendary designer Irene Sharaff, who designed numerous Broadway productions, including the original stagings of Lady in the Dark, West Side Story, The King and I, Juno, Sweet Charity, Funny Girl, Candide and Jerome Robbins' Broadway.
