Obie Awards

On Monday, May 18, 2015, the 60th Annual Obie Awards, Off-Broadway’s highest honors, were co-presented by The Village Voice and the American Theatre Wing at Webster Hall in New York City. Host Lea DeLaria delivered a bold and entertaining program to an audience of New York’s most exciting and entrepreneurial producers, impresarios, directors, and artists. Clear Channel Spectacolor was the Official Outdoor Media Partner of the 2015 Obie Awards.
