In light of recent events surrounding COVID-19, The Off-Broadway League and the Lucille Lortel Theatre Foundation have revised the schedule for the 35th Annual Lucille Lortel Awards for Outstanding Achievement Off-Broadway. With the closure of theatres across the city, and to offer affected shows as much flexibility as possible, shows that opened after February 16 were given the option to be considered as part of either the Lortel Awards’ 2020 or 2021 season.
Nominations for the 35th Annual Lucille Lortel Awards will now be announced April 14, and the ceremony will be presented virtually as an online event on May 3 at 7pm. Tim Sanford will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and Anna Deavere Smith will be inducted into the Playwrights Sidewalk.
More details about the virtual ceremony to be announced shortly.
