All of the videos of the individual 2020 Award announcements by category are available on the Theatre Washington YouTube channel.
The 36th annual Helen Hayes Awards were celebrated over four weeks in August and September 2020 as a series of virtual events – both individual award announcements and a culmination video premiere. We recognized outstanding work on Washington, DC-area stages in 2019, reflected on this unprecedented time in our industry, and gathered more than 2,300 people in celebration.
