Gold, O'Byrne added to event

Judy Gold and Brian F. O’Byrne will host the Lucille Lortel Awards at New World Stages on May 1.

Ceremony includes Joan Allen and Peter Friedman re-creating a scene from “The Heidi Chronicles” as a tribute to Wendy Wasserstein, who will receive a posthumous lifetime achievement award.

The Off Broadway-centric Lortels announced their nominations earlier this month. “Abigail’s Party,” “A Trip to Bountiful” and “Grey Gardens” lead the pack.
