Rudin just won a Grammy for producing Best Musical Theater Album (“Book of Mormon”). Previously, Rudin won a Tony for producing Best Musical “Book of Mormon” on Broadway in addition to Tonys for “The History Boys” (Best Play, 2006), “Doubt” (Best Play, 2005), “The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?” (Best Play 2002), “Copenhagen” (Best Play, 2000) and “Passion” (Best Musical, 1994).
