In addition to the Drama Desk Award, Scheuer is the recipient of a Theatre World Award, the Musical Theatre Network Award for Best Lyrics, and the ASCAP Cole Porter Award for Songwriting. He has been a nominee for two Outer Critics Circle Awards, a Lucile Lortel Award, and an additional Drama Desk Award for Best Lyrics.
