Document your 2010-2011 productions

Contributed by Shay Gines.

I hope you had a fantastic and very productive 2010-2011 season. I want to document and archive your theatrical activities from this last year.
For the last 67 years, Theatre World has been documenting Broadway and Off-Broadway productions and has become the leading archivist of information for American theatre. In 2009 they began to include Off-Off-Broadway
The editors of Theatre World recognized the legitimacy of our community and felt that it deserved a place in this archive and I was honored that they asked me to help collect information about our amazing community.
It is so important that our community is represented. It helps to shed a light on the importance of this sector and demonstrates, the number of productions, the variety, the innovation and the determination of the work being created in our community. 
 I need your help.

 1. Please complete the online form documenting your company's season (see below)
 2. Please forward the link to this post to your fellow OOB producers and ask them to do the same.
What I need is your production information from the 2010-2011 season (shows that played between June 1, 2010 and May 31, 2011), for inclusion in Volume 67, including individual production information as well as benefits, readings, workshops, etc.
I know as an OOB producer your time is valuable, but the annual Theatre World publications are one of the premiere archives for American Theatre and it is so important for our community to be represented. I ask you to take this time to provide the information requested, so that your company's production(s) will be recorded and referenced everywhere by theatre scholars, students, casting directors, producers, and other industry professionals daily. In addition, it will be a part of the permanent record of Off-Off-Broadway and placed in important research and reference libraries from The Library of Congress to most colleges and universities across the country.
Here’s the link to the form:

Theatre World is the oldest pictorial and statistical record of the American theatre, published annually as a hardcover book by Applause Theatre & Cinema Books (America's foremost publisher of theatre and cinema books) and has been continually published since 1945. It is the most comprehensive and definitive record of Broadway, Off-Broadway, regional theatre, and Off-Off-Broadway, and is available for purchase at many fine online establishments, including, , or
Thank you for your cooperation in helping us to maintain the most complete annual record of the American theatre!
