The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust presented the 2nd Annual ‘Mimi' Awards in a ceremony on Monday, October 26th, at Lincoln Center Theater's Vivian Beaumont Theater.

Playwrights Bruce Norris, Tarell Alvin McCraney and David Adjmi are the first recipients of the ‘Steinberg Playwright Awards.'

Last year, The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust presented Tony Kushner with the very first ‘Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award,' which carried a cash prize of $200,000, making it the largest award ever created to encourage artistic achievement in the American theater. As previously announced, the ‘Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award' (for established playwrights) and the ‘Steinberg Playwright Awards' (for playwrights in earlier stages of their careers), both known as ‘The Mimi,' will be presented in alternating years.

The members of the Board of Directors of The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust are Carole A. Krumland, James D. Steinberg, Michael A. Steinberg, Seth M. Weingarten and William D. Zabel.

The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust was created by Harold Steinberg in 1986 in the names of himself and his late wife Miriam. The Trust's primary mission is to support and promote the American theater as a vital part of our culture by nurturing American Playwrights, encouraging the development and production of new American plays, and providing significant support to theater companies across the country.

Since its inception, the Trust has given in excess of $40 million to more than one hundred not-for-profit theater organizations. These gifts have funded countless productions, as well as the commissioning of playwrights, playwriting programs and arts-in-education outreach programs for tens of thousands of children in an effort to create and educate new generations of theatergoers.
