The New York Drama Critics' Circle comprises 22 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. Adam Feldman, theatre critic for Time Out New York, has served as president of the NYDCC since 2005. For more information, visit www.dramacritics.org/.
