Woman of the Year, the 1981 John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Peter Stone musical opened March 29, 1981 at the Palace Theatre on Broadway. The show won four Tony Awards including Best Book and Best Score, as well as Best Actress to star Lauren Bacall.

Based on the 1942 film of the same title starring Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, the Broadway musical starred Bacall as a TV reporter who goes into battle mode when she is parodied by a chauvinistic cartoonist.
