Tony Awards 2012

The Tonys are bestowing a bounty of special awards.

A lifetime achievement honor goes to longtime producer Emanuel Azenberg whose Broadway producing career began with “The Lion in Winter” in 1966, includes several Neil Simon productions and continues with this season’s Tony nominated musical “Nice Work if You Can Get It.”

The Isabelle Stevenson Award will be presented to Tony winning-actress Bernadette Peters for her humanitarian efforts, including her work with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Broadway Barks, which she co-founded with Mary Tyler Moore.

Honors for excellence in the theater go to Musical Theater Intl. topper Freddie Gershon, production supervisor Artie Siccardi and TDF Open Doors, which partners with New York City high schools to introduce underserved students to live theater.

Additionally, the Tony Awards Administration Committee will bestow two special Tony Awards this year. They go to Actors’ Equity Assn. and Hugh Jackman, who appeared in the revue “Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway” last season. Jackman returns to the Rialto in the 2013-14 season in the new musical “Houdini.”
