He has won numerous awards, including three Pulitzer Prizes (A Delicate Balance, Seascape, and Three Tall Women) and three Tony Awards (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, A Delicate Balance, and The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?). In 1996 he received a Kennedy Center Lifetime Achievement Award and was presented with the National Medal of Arts by President Clinton.
