New York, NY – (May 17, 2006): The IT Awards (New York Innovative Theatre
Awards), the organization dedicated to celebrating Off-Off-Broadway,
begins its 3rd annual awards season with an exciting announcement:
Starting June 1st 2006, productions from Brooklyn will now be eligible for
IT Awards. The 2005-2006 season draws to a close on May 31st 2006.

As promised in February when the IT Awards welcomed productions from
Queens, the inclusion of Brooklyn represents another step towards the goal
of including all of Off-Off-Broadway. “With nearly a hundred
Off-Off-Broadway companies based in Brooklyn we are very excited to be
able to recognize this thriving arts community and honor their theatrical
contributions and achievements,” says Shay Gines, co-founder of the IT

The IT Awards are given annually to honor individuals and organizations
who have achieved artistic excellence in Off-Off-Broadway theatre. The New
York IT Awards recognizes the unique and essential role Off-Off-Broadway
plays in contributing to American and global culture, and believes that
publicly recognizing excellence in Off-Off-Broadway theatre will expand
audience awareness and appreciation of the full New York theatre

Save-the-date for the 2nd Annual IT Awards Ceremony:
September 18th, 2006 sponsored by Back Stage.
