Subsequently, it moved to Broadway under the egress of The Shubert Organization, Suntory International Corporation and James Walsh. It was the most acclaimed play of the season, and won the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Hull-Warriner Award, and the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
