Awards will be presented in seven competitive categories: Best New Musical, Best New Play, Best Play Revival, Best Musical Revival, Best Unique Theatrical Experience, Best Solo Performance, and Best Family Show.

The winners in all categories will be selected by the members of the awards committee of the Off Broadway Alliance, which includes producers, theatres, general managers, press agents, and marketing professionals.

Last year, Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me was the recipient of Off Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Play, and Dick Scanlan and Carmel Dean's musical Renascence, presented by Transport Group, was named Best New Musical.

In addition to the competitive awards, four Legend of Off Broadway Awards will be presented for sustained achievement in the world of Off-Broadway and three new honorees will be posthumously inducted into the Off Broadway Hall of Fame. The Off Broadway Alliance will also continue its tradition of presenting the Friend of Off Broadway Award, honoring a person or organization for its ongoing support of the Off-Broadway community.
