Each year, New Dramatists salutes an individual who has made an outstanding artistic contribution to the theatre community.

The show has continued to garner acclaim with her recent productions at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre, American Conservatory Theater, the Ahmanson Theatre, and the Young Vic in London.

She co-created, directed and choreographed the groundbreaking musical Contact for Lincoln Center Theater, winning the 2000 Tony Award for Best Choreography, as well as Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel Awards and a 2003 Emmy Award for "Live from Lincoln Center".
