The New York Independent Theater Awards is a not-for-profit organization recognizing the great work of New York City’s off-off Broadway, honoring its artistic heritage, and providing a meeting ground for this extensive and richly varied 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 foster a greater appreciation of the New York theatre experience.www.nyitawards.com
