Welcome to the Kevin Kline Awards
Recognizing outstanding achievement in Professional Theatre in
the Greater St. Louis Area, The Kevin Kline Awards honor theatre artists
and productions in over 20 categories. The awards are named in honor of
St. Louis' own Tony and Academy Award winner Kevin Kline.
Kline, who now lives in New York, is delighted. "I've long been
under the impression that people didn't lend their names to awards until
after they had died." he said, upon learning of the award. 'I'm in
pretty good health right now, and feeling all the better for having
received this lovely and unexpected honor. It's gratifying to think that
I can continue to be associated with theater excellence in the city
where so many of my earliest theater impressions were formed."
The first annual Kevin Kline Awards were presented on March 20, 2006 in the beautifully restored Robert's Orpheum Theatre (formerly the American Theatre).
