The Annual Helen Hayes Awards are a celebration of the achievements of the Washington, DC-area theatre community. Gathering in the spring to present the Awards, we reflect on the year; honor and celebrate the artists, designers, playwrights, and productions; and have a big party – including dancing! – together.
In 2020, the Helen Hayes Awards (honoring productions in 2019) were held virtually. We look forward to celebrating an Awards ceremony again in 2023 to honor productions produced in the calendar year of 2022. The ceremony will return to The Anthem on May 22, 2023.
