At the 2017 Spring Benefit: Spring Into Action, The Civilians, a not-for-profit Off Broadway theater company, will present The Civilian of the Year Award to two individuals that have erased the lines between art and activism. Hesu Coue-Wilson has used her time as a journalist and producer for Democracy Now! to inform her work as an activist and an advocate for the arts. Oskar Eustis uses his role as Artistic Director of The Public Theater to put true inclusiveness into practice on its many stages, and to make theater a part of the national dialogue.

The highlight of the evening is an original, one-night-only performance created by Artistic Director Steve Cosson. It will include original tribute songs for the honorees composed by Civilians’ Associate Artist Michael Friedman (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Fortress of Solitude), as well as musical performances by The Civilians’ Associate Artists and special guests including Tony Award-winning actress Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), singer/songwriter Jill Sobule (“I  Kissed a Girl”) and Mo Rocca (CBS This Morning).

Dinner tickets are $750 & $500 with all proceeds to benefit The Civilians, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. For tickets, call 718-230-3330 or visit
