Nottage, Kander, Weller gets Dramatists Guild awards

Bock, Harnick, McNally score lifetime achievement honors

Lynn Nottage, John Kander and Michael Weller are among the scribes set for honors next month from the Dramatists Guild of America.

Tuner-writing duo Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick and playwright Terrence McNally will receive lifetime achievement kudos at the guild’s annual awards ceremony on Nov. 1 at the Hudson Theater.

Nottage has landed the Hull-Warriner Award, given to plays dealing with controversial political, religious or social topics, for “Ruined,” her Congo-set drama that already has won an Obie, a Drama Desk and a Pulitzer.

Composer-centric Frederick Loewe Award goes to Kander for his score to “The Scottsboro Boys,” now playing on Broadway, while Weller receives the Flora Roberts Award for work that includes “Fifty Words,” “Moonchildren” and his role as one of the founders of Cherry Lane Theater’s Mentor Project, which pairs up-and-coming scribes with more experienced authors.

Bock and Harnick score the lifetime laurel for their collaborations on musicals including “Fiddler on the Roof,” while McNally, who penned the book for incoming Broadway show “Catch Me If You Can,” gets his for plays including “Love! Valour! Compassion!” and “Master Class.”
