The American Theatre Wing has entered into a partnership with the Village Voice to co-present The OBIE Awards, Off Broadway’s Highest Honor. The Wing will take overall responsibility for running the OBIES, effective immediately, under the oversight of a newly formed OBIES Administration Committee (comprised of both American Theatre Wing and Village Voice representatives). The selection process will be overseen by this Administration Committee, but will continue under the chairmanship of Michael Feingold. Judges will be appointed and approved by Feingold and the Administrative Committee.
The upcoming Obie Award Ceremony – the first presentation under this new partnership – will take place in May 2015 and will mark the Award’s 60th anniversary.
