Astaires tap terps

Levering, Arnold among individual winners

NEW YORK — Susan Stroman was honored with this year’s Astaire Award for choreography for her work on “The Producers.” Awards were given out at a lunch ceremony Friday benefiting the Theater Development Fund, administrator of the awards.

Other winners of the terp nods were Kate Levering, who plays the tap-happy Peggy Sawyer in “42nd Street” and won the female dancer award, and her co-star Michael Arnold, who took home the male dancer nod.

Donald Saddler, currently appearing in Broadway’s “Follies,” was given a lifetime achievement award. A noted ballet and Broadway dancer and later choreographer, Saddler won Tonys for his choreography on “Wonderful Town” and “No, No, Nanette.” He devised dances for some 20 Broadway productions.

Stroman’s nod is her second in a row. She took home the award last season for her work on “Contact” and “The Music Man.” She won a third Astaire award for “Show Boat.”

Ceremony at the Hudson Theater was hosted by Karen Ziemba (“Contact”) and directed by Scott Wise.
