The Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York), the service and advocacy organization for New York City's 360 nonprofit theatres, celebrated 44 years of service and dedication to the theatrical nonprofit community at its annual spring gala on Monday, April 11. The evening was hosted by celebrated three-time Drama Desk nominee Julie Halston.

This year, A.R.T./New York honored Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress) and Andy Truschinski (The Heidi Chronicles, War Horse) with The Abe L. Blinder Award for public service and arts education. Acoustician Joe Solway and international multi-disciplinary engineering and consulting firm, Arup, of which Solway is associate principal, received The Kathy and Howard J. Aibel Award for theatrical innovation and excellence.

The 2016 gala program featured "mini musicals" written specifically for honorees by Richard Rodgers Award-winning lyricist Timothy Huang and BMI Harrington Award-winning Lyricist Sara Wordsworth. The program was directed and choreographed by Terry Berliner, with musical direction by BMI Harrington Award winner Arri Lawton Simon.

"Jessie and Andy are gifted artists who believe strongly in mentoring young artists and advocating for the arts." said A.R.T./New York Executive Director, Ginny Louloudes. "Jessie is a passionate supporter of Broadway Cares, Rosie's Theatre Kids, and enjoys teaching workshops and master classes for aspiring young artists. Andy has led master classes for students and professionals across the country, including his Alma Mater, University of Wisconsin - Whitewater and the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival. The timing for this award could not be better since Jessie Mueller is making history this spring in the new musical Waitress with the first ever all-female creative team on Broadway."
