About the Survey and Us:

While the Off-Off-Broadway (OOB) community encompasses hundreds of companies and thousands of theatre artists, there exists virtually no statistical information about this vast and diverse community. We need 6,000 OOB artists to respond to the demographics survey by November 1st 2008! You can help provide vital statistics for our community.

About Us: The New York Innovative Theatre Foundation was created to bring recognition to the great work being done in New York City's Off-Off-Broadway, to honor its artistic heritage, and to provide a meeting ground for this extensive community. The organization advocates for Off-Off-Broadway and recognizes the unique and essential role it plays in contributing to American and global culture. We believe that publicly recognizing excellence in Off-Off-Broadway will expand audience awareness and appreciation of the full New York theatre experience.

The IT Awards is a not-for-profit arts organization supporting the Off-Off-Broadway community by:

  • Celebrating and Recognizing extraordinary Off-Off-Broadway Theatre
