Kevin R. Free is famous...he's just waiting for you to realize it. The IT Awards may have helped him out a little this year by presenting him with the Doric Wilson Independent Playwright Award. Presented by playwright Mariah McCarthy, she described the award as being given to someone "who reminds us of Doric who displays playwriting talent, passion and a commitment to being a truth teller."
The 2014 New York Innovative Theatre Awards were presented on Monday, September 22, 2014 at Baruch College's Mason Hall. The event was hosted by the charming and irreverent Jason Kravits. The 2014 nominees represented 133 individual artists, 59 productions and 56 producing organizations. It was a very exciting and energetic evening filled with community spirit.

Sometimes a colossal honor can fit inside a tiny circle, no wider than a human finger. The Innovative Theatre Foundation (ITF) received one such physics-defying honor this past July 21st, when Martin Denton and Rochelle Denton of the New York Theatre Experience presented core ITF team members Shay Gines, Akia Squitieri, and Nick Micozzi with a ring that once belonged to a man named Joe Cino. It’s not so strange if you measure the honor inherent in a ring not by its circumference, but by the hands through which the ring has passed. By this metric, there are few objects in American theater of equal value.
We get asked that a lot. So, we produced a fun 5-minute video to explain how the process works. It features many of the OOB artists we all know and love. We hope it helps answer some of the questions that you might have. Check it out on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuwCMk0ZU98 You can also check out the powerpoint presentation of the process. http://www.nyitawards.com/aboutus/judgingprocess.asp
