The Relentless Award
—ETHAN HAWKE, Artistic Advisor
“Phil Hoffman was relentless. He was relentless in his pursuit of the truth and in his desire that art should not have one lie in it. He was relentless in what he expected of himself and others—and we were all the better for it. The Relentless Award continues Phil’s legacy and impact on theater by supporting playwrights that embody his Relentlessness.”
In 2021, the Relentless Award will honor Adam Schlesinger by dedicating this year’s award to musical theater.
