Today, Indie Theatre Week officially begins in New York City. The New York Innovative Theatre Awards will celebrate the 2011-2012 indie theatre season with the 2012 Nominee Announcement Party at the historic Off-Off Broadway venue, Demo Hall / Carmine St. Center at Our Lady of Pompeii (25 Carmine Street at the corner of Bleecker).
The festivities begin at 7:00 pm, and the official announcement of nominees will take place at 8:00 pm. Tickets are only $10 and may be purchased in advance at the New York Innovative Theatre Awards’ web site.
According to the organization’s mission, 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.
