Washington honored its thriving theatre community at the 29th Annual Helen Hayes Awards at the Warner Theatre on Apr. 8. Actress Ellen Burstyn, the first woman elected president of Actors Equity Association, accepted the Helen Hayes Tribute, sponsored by the late beloved Jaylee Mead to the AEA. Capital Fringe and Dizzy Miss Lizzie’s Roadside Review received special awards. Metro Stage’s Jacques Brel garnered several awards as did Imagination Stage and the Washington Ballet for their collaboration on The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe. Folger Theatre’s Taming of the Shrew took the evening’s final award for Outstanding Resident Play. Following the presentations everyone proceeded to the JW Marriott Hotel to “party hearty.”
