The award is given annually to "a theatre showing great creative promise." Elizabeth Jones, the company's founder and executive director, will accept the award at the upcoming luncheon.

The Lucille Lortel Women's Visionary Award, which will be given for the first time, will be presented to Voice & Vision, a New York-based company that "develops work with women at the core and provides them with time, space and resources to create in an environment free from commercial pressures." Jean Wagner, Voice & Vision's artistic director, will accept the $1,000 award.

Tickets to The League of Professional Theatre Women's 2008 Awards ceremony luncheon, priced $35, are available by calling (212) 501-6667.
