The GTG Golden Shamrock Award is given annually for artistic contribution to society. Past honorees include Terrence McNally, Judith Ivey, Brian Murray, Robert Osborne, Anita Jaffe, Charles Busch, Kate Mulgrew, and Kenneth Lonergan.
"As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote in New York with GTG's theme for 2017, 'Women Take The Stage: G.B.S. and 100 years of women's rights', Tyne Daly is the perfect embodiment of Shaw's idealized vision of the Life Force: brilliant, beautiful, vital, engaged, contributive, loving, open-hearted, and enjoying life - and we are thrilled to honor her this and every day," said Artistic Director David Staller.
Join Charles Busch, Alison Fraser, Joel Grey, Liliane Montevecchi, Kate Mulgrew, TCM's Robert Osborne, Aaron Weinstein, Irish Fiddlers, and other surprise guests for an evening of celebration raising voices and building for the future.
