Photo highlights from the 2018 Helen Hayes Awards!

The 2018 Helen Hayes Awards gave the DC theater community a chance to relax, recharge and reflect on a great year of theater.

Two productions of In the Heights dominated the evening, with GALA Hispanic Theatre’s production taking home nine awards, including Outstanding Production in a Musical – Helen. Olney Theatre Center’s joint production with Round House Theatre took home the Oustanding Production in a Musical – Hayes award.

The Outstanding Production in a Play awards went to Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Twelfth Night (Hayes) and Theatre Alliance’s Still Life with Rocket (Helen). For a full accounting of winners, click here.
