Costume designer Jane Greenwood is the Susan Lucci of the Tony Awards — she has been nominated 16 times but has never won. This year, her five-decade losing streak will officially come to an end.
Tony organizers announced on Tuesday that Greenwood is the recipient of the Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre.
Greenwood is expected to receive the award at the Tony ceremony on June 8 at Radio City Music Hall. It will be broadcast live on CBS, with a delay for the West Coast.
