Off Broadway Alliance Awards Nominations and Winners 2017
The Off Broadway Alliance, an organization made up of Off-Broadway producers, theatres, general managers, press agents, and marketing professionals, announced their nominees for the 7th Annual Off Broadway Alliance Awards. The awards focus their eyes on commercial and not-for-profit productions that opened Off-Broadway during the 2016-2017 season.
Awards are presented in only seven categories: Best New Musical, Best New Play, Best Musical Revival, Best Play Revival, Best Unique Theatrical Experience, Best Solo Performance, and Best Family Show. Winners are selected by secret ballot by members of the awards committee of the Off Broadway Alliance. Winners are announced on May 16.
In addition to the competitive awards, there are six recipients of this year’s Off Broadway Alliance Legend of Off Broadway Award: Harvey Fierstein, Athol Fugard, Israel Horovitz, Charlotte Moore, Estelle Parsons, and Paula Vogel. The 2017 Off Broadway Alliance Hall of Fame Award will be presented posthumously to Signature Theatre founder James Houghton.
