TO ANNOUNCE 2010-11 WINNERS

MONDAY, MAY 9

Adam Feldman, president of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle (NYDCC), has announced that the Circle will meet at the offices of Time Out New York magazine on Monday, May 9, to select the winners of the 76th  annual New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards, which will be announced at approximately 7pm, immediately following the meeting.

The awards will be presented at a cocktail reception to be held on Monday, May 16, at Angus McIndoe Restaurant.

The New York Drama Critics’ Circle comprises 25 drama critics from daily newspapers, magazines, wire services and websites based in the New York metropolitan area. The New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, which has been awarded every year since 1936 to the best new play of the season (with optional awards for foreign or American plays, musicals and performers), is the nation's second-oldest theatre award, after the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

The prestigious award for best play carries a cash prize of $2,500. Also, a cash award of $1,000 goes to the winner for best American or foreign play. The prizes are made possible by a grant from the Lucille Lortel Foundation.
