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 sponsors 20at20, the event that runs twice a year for 20 days and lets theatergoers purchase $20 tickets to dozens of Off Broadway shows 20 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.  And the Alliance created the Off Broadway Economic Impact Report, which outlines Off Broadway’s over $500 million annual impact on the economy of the City of New York.

Last year’s Off Broadway Alliance winner for Best New Musical (SILENCE! The Musical) is still running strong Off Broadway, and the Best New Play winner (Tribes) transferred to L.A.’s Mark Taper Forum immediately following its extended run at the Barrow Street Theatre.

The 2013 Off Broadway Alliance Awards will be presented on Tuesday, June 18th at 4:30 PM at Sardi’s.
