Benjamin Bonnema & Christopher Staskel receive the Sixteenth Annual Fred Ebb Award for Musical Theatre Songwriting
The Fred Ebb Foundation (Mitchell Bernard, Trustee) in association with the Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) also presents an annual award, named for Mr. Ebb, to aspiring musical theatre songwriters. The Fred Ebb Award recognizes excellence in musical theatre songwriting, by a songwriter or songwriting team that has not yet achieved significant commercial success. The award is meant to encourage and support aspiring songwriters to create new works for the musical theatre, and includes a $60,000 award. This year’s award – held virtually – was presented to Benjamin Bonnema & Christopher Staskel and Michael R. Jackson.
