Rosie O'Donnell to Receive Special Tony Award


Rosie O'Donnell is set to receive the Isabelle Stevenson Award at this year's Tony Awards, presented annually to a theater community member for humanitarian, social service or charitable contributions, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

O'Donnell was chosen for the 2014 award in recognition of her commitment to arts education for New York City public school children and her establishment of the nonprofit arts education foundation Rosie's Theater Kids (originally known as Rosie's Broadway Kids), which provides students with training in dance, music and drama, mentoring programs and exposure to professional theater.

"Rosie exemplifies the spirit and the generosity of the Broadway community through her "pay it forward" mentality within the arts community and beyond," said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League and Heather Hitchens, executive director of the American Theatre Wing.
