* The ensemble casts of “Columbinus” and “Coram Boy” will be honored collectively on the dais. The producers of each of these shows may appoint one or two cast members to appear on the dais on behalf of the show’s entire ensemble.

In addition, five past recipients of the Distinguished Performance Award will be honored on this dais for their work this season. However, because an individual can only receive the Distinguished Performance Award once in his/her lifetime, they are ineligible for award consideration this year.

Those past honorees include:

Zoe Caldwell — “A Spanish Play”
Kathleen Chalfant — “Great Expectations,” “Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell”
Christine Ebersole — “Grey Gardens”
Frank Langella — “Frost/Nixon”
Christopher Plummer — “Inherit the Wind”
