Over the years, Breuer received numerous awards and fellowships including a Guggenheim, two Fulbrights, a MacArthur, the Helen Hayes award, and the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French Ministry of Culture. He was also nominated for many honors including a Pulitzer, a Grammy, and an Emmy. In 1988 Breuer officially declined a Tony Nomination for Best Book for a production of Gospel at Colonus.
