Larry Kramer To Get Special Tony Award

Larry Kramer will be honored this year with a special Tony Award.
Kramer will receive this year’s Isabelle Stevenson Award, a non-competitive Tony award given to an individual from the theater community who has made a substantial contribution on behalf of humanitarian, social service or charitable organizations. “Writers who are activists are very rarely taken seriously as artists,” Kramer said in an interview. “I look upon this recognition as acknowledgment that a serious writer can also be a serious activist, and no less an artist for it.”
This year's regular Tony Award nominees will be announced this morning.
