Held at 7 PM, the Lortel Awards will honor Tony-winning producer Robyn Goodman (Cinderella, In the Heights, Avenue Q) with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
The Off-Broadway League, which presents the Lortel Awards, also announced the addition of four acting categories, which will now separately honor actors and actresses in the respective play and musical categories. Previously, the nominees in the Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress and Outstanding Featured Actor/Actress categories comprised performers from both plays and musicals.
Lucille Lortel Award nominees will be announced April 1. Representatives of the Off-Broadway League, Actors' Equity Association, Stage Directors & Choreographers Society, the Lucille Lortel Foundation, in addition to theatre journalists, academics and other Off-Broadway professionals, serve on the Voting Committee.
Michael Heitzman will direct the Lortel Awards for the fifth consecutive year. The Lucille Lortel Awards are produced by special arrangement with the Lucille Lortel Foundation. Additional support is provided by Theatre Development Fund.
