You may notice some changes to the Seattle award categories this year. In an effort to be more inclusive toward non-binary performers we have decided to remove the gender specifications from the performer categories. So, you will see now we simply have “Best Leading Performer” and “Best Featured Performer” in the play and musical categories. These are open to all gender identities within the same category.
Also, you see that the categories have been split between Large Budget Theatre-Local, Mid-Range to Smaller Budget Theatre-Local, and Touring. Large Budget Theatre-Local would be those theaters that utilize Equity or union contracts for their cast and crew to some extent. Mid-Range or Smaller Budget Theatres are ones that may pay a stipend but are more on a volunteer basis. As for putting the right theaters in the right categories, do your best. We’ll fix it if it goes awry.
The BWW Awards, sponsored by TodayTix honor productions which opened between October 1, 2018 through September 30, 2019. Only productions which opened during this time period are eligible.
