They are Tony winner and singing legend Barbara Cook for distinguished achievement in musical theater; Key Brand Entertainment/Broadway Across America for bringing New York productions to theaters across the country; and Tony winner John Tiffany (Once, The Glass Menagerie) for excellence in directing.

They are the only major theatergoer awards chosen by audience members — specifically, by the thousands of Drama League members nationwide who attend Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. The distinguished performance award first went to the theater icon Katharine Cornell and has since been presented to such stars as Nathan Lane, Christopher Plummer, Liam Neeson, Audra McDonald, High Jackman, Patti LuPone, and Bernadette Peters.
