Christopher Durang was not only a giant in our field, but a guiding light whose daring works illuminated the stage with brilliance and wit. His legacy as a playwright, lyricist, and educator is immeasurable, touching the lives of countless artists and audiences alike. As we prepare to honor him on May 6 with a Lifetime Achievement recognition at our annual Awards Night ceremony, we are filled with gratitude for his contributions to the dramatic arts.

From his acclaimed works to his dedicated service on the Dramatists Guild Council and his influential tenure at Juilliard, Chris’ impact will continue to resonate for generations to come. Though he may not be with us to witness this tribute, his spirit lives on in the hearts of those he touched. Our thoughts are with his husband John Augustine, his longtime agent Patrick Herold and the writers whose lives he enriched with his passion and wisdom.
