Meet Our Honorees


Jeffrey Gural New York City philanthropist and A.R.T./New York Board member for more than a decade, Jeff Gural has provided his unwavering vision, knowledge, and commitment to countless New York City cultural and social organizations, truly helping to make our shared community a more vibrant and vital place. Jeff’s dedication to A.R.T./New York alone has led to the organization’s transformational growth—this includes his role in helping to provide invaluable space for A.R.T./New York and for so many of our members, as well as the successful planning, design and construction of the A.R.T./New York Theatres and the naming of the Jeffrey & Paula Gural Theatre. 

Mia Katigbak

 Award-winning actress and A.R.T./New York member Mia Katigbak is an inspiring theater artist and a fierce advocate for Asian Americans, providing established and emerging artists with the roles, opportunities, and visibility to which they would not otherwise have access. The National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO)—co-founded by Mia in 1989—and its performers have been the recipients of numerous accolades. Under her leadership, NAATCO received the Obie's Ross Wetzsteon Award, a Drama League nomination for Outstanding Revival for a Broadway or Off-Broadway play (Awake and Sing!), and a Drama Desk nomination for Best Music in a Play (A Play on War).  

J.T. Rogers

Tony- and Obie-Award-winning playwright and previous A.R.T./New York member J.T. Rogers is our preeminent international playwright. In the words of The Guardian: "If contemporary American playwrights ever formed a cabinet, Rogers would be a shoo-in for secretary of state.” J.T. writes about humanity set against the harsh realities of racially segregated, current day America; Rwanda in 1994, just prior to the outbreak of the genocide; and, in J.T.’s 2017 Tony Award-winning Best Play Oslo, the behind-the-scenes political and diplomatic worlds of the Palestine/Israeli crisis that led to the Oslo Accord.
