Ms. Light, Mr. Shanley and Ms. Torre join an impressive, select group of actors, producers and writers whom the studio has previously honored. Past recipients include Roger Berlind, Betty Buckley, Ellen Burstyn, John Guare, Anne Jackson, Cynthia Nixon, Mary-Louise Parker, Gerald Schoenfeld, Marian Seldes, and Eli Wallach.
