Celebrating its 66th season of bestowing awards of excellence in the field of theatre, the Outer Critics Circle, is an association with members affiliated with more than ninety newspapers, magazines, web sites, radio and television stations, and theatre publications in America and abroad. Of note, Hamilton was nominated for and won in several award categories for its Off-Broadway production last season. The previous Off-Broadway productions of Disaster andBlackbird were considered for nominations by the Outer Critics Circle and therefore were not reconsidered for this year. Only new cast members' performances in these productions were taken into account for recognition in the 2015-16 season. Due to OCC's nomination deadline, the producers of the new Broadway musical Shuffle Along asked to be considered with next season's entries.
