Tony winner Jane Greenwood will receive the Ming Cho Lee Lifetime Achievement Award at the Henry Hewes Design Awards October 7.

A 21-time Tony nominee for her work, the costume designer finally won for The Little Foxes in 2017. She also received a Lifetime Achievement Tony Award in 2014 for her contribution to the theatre.

Greenwood has crafted the costumes for over 100 productions, including last season’s All My Sons, the original Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim’s Passion, and the 1988 revival of Our Town. Her Broadway debut came in 1965 with Tartuffe, which she designed again in 2003.
