The Broadway League has announced its first two award recipients - including Gerald Schoenfeld (for whom the award is named) and New York City Department of Education chancellor, Joel Klein.

Both are being honored for their contributions to arts education. The award will be handed out on October 6 at a League gala for Blueprint for the Arts.

The October 6 gala will take place at the Waldorf Astoria and will feature performances by Betty Buckley, Carolee Carmello, Marin Mazzie, Donna Murphy, Leslie Uggams, and students from New York City public schools.

The proceeds raised from this evening will jointly benefit implementation of the Blueprint for the Arts in the NYC public schools and The Broadway League's educational initiatives.
