Wit won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.[13] The play also received the "Best New Play" award for 1999 from the New York Drama Critics' Circle.[14] Because the play did not receive a production at a Broadway theatre, Wit was not eligible for the Tony Awards at that time.[15] Chalfant received an award from the Village Voice Obies for her performance.

The 2012 Broadway production was nominated for the Tony Award, Best Revival of a Play, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Cynthia Nixon).[16]
