Sondheim Award Gala

Signature’‘s annual Sondheim Award Gala honors those who have contributed to the works of Stephen Sondheim and the canon of American musical theater. The Sondheim Award Gala benefits Signature’‘s artistic, education, and community outreach programs.

The Gala takes place at the Embassy of Italy in Washington, DC, and is a festive evening that includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a gourmet seated dinner, and a delicious dessert buffet. Each year, the honoree receives a special award presentation that includes tribute performances by notable Broadway and Signature artists.
