SF Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle 2007 Award Winners

Representing the print and electronic media, 21 members of the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle announced the winners of 36 drama awards and 31 musical awards from 243 nominated actors, designers, productions, and more reviewed in 2007. Over 400 productions were seen in 2007 by Circle critics reviewing theatre from San Jose to Santa Rosa, San Francisco to Concord.

This year the SFBATCC inaugurated the separation of award categories between Theatres with (1) Over 99 Seats and (2) 99 Seats or Less. As such, smaller theatre companies will not compete against the larger ones and will receive recognition for their outstanding work.
