Since then, the show has garnered numerous awards and critical acclaim:
- In 2006, the show and its creator were awarded Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre.
- It has been nominated five times for the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revue, winning three times (2001, 2005 and 2008). It also won Drama Desk Special Awards in 1985 and 2009.
- An Obie Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award
