1 min read

The American Repertory Theater Artistic Director Diane Paulus is the recipient of the Drama League’s 2012 Founders Award for Excellence in Directing. The award will be presented to her at the league’s 78th Annual Awards Ceremony on May 18, at the Marriott Marquee before a distinguished audience of industry professionals and league members.

The award can be won only once in a lifetime and is given to an individual whose work over time sets new standards of directing excellence in American theater. This award is being given in recognition of Paulus’ body of work, highlights of which include the tremendously successful revival of “Hair,” and most recently, “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.”
