The Off Broadway Alliance, the organization of Off Broadway producers, theaters, general managers, press agents and marketing firms, has announced the winners of the 2nd Annual Off Broadway Alliance Awards, honoring commercial and not-for-profit Off Broadway productions that opened during the 2011-2012 season.
The Off Broadway Alliance is a non-profit corporation organized by theater professionals dedicated to supporting, promoting and encouraging the production of Off Broadway theater and to making live theater increasingly accessible to new and diverse audiences. Among its initiatives, The Off Broadway Alliance founded and sponsors 20at20, the biannual event that offers $20 tickets to dozens of Off Broadway shows twenty minutes before curtain. It produces a free Seminar Series focusing on the culture, business and history of Off Broadway featuring major players from the Off Broadway scene. The Alliance compiles the annual Off Broadway Economic Impact Report, which documents Off Broadway's over $500 million annual impact on the economy of the City of New York.
Last year’s Off Broadway Alliance winners for Best New Play (Freud’s Last Session) and Best New Musical (NEWSical the Musical) are still running strong Off-Broadway.
