The Obie Awards were created by Jerry Tallmer in 1955, soon after the first publication of the paper, to publicly acknowledge and encourage the growing Off-Broadway theatre movement.

See it if You love theater and/or film!!!! You’ll recognize actors, writers, set and costume designers, etc! The venue is small, so you may meet them!
Don't see it if you get jealous easily or if you want to fall asleep at a show. No! Go and have fun! There will be free wine and beer too. :)
See it if you have seen a lot of off-B'way stuff, especially the serious stuff. I didn't know many of the shows. Laura Benanti was great, good singers
Don't see it if you don't want to sit for a very long time watching acceptance speeches. At least there were free beers. Really bad comedy skit re: Cardi B
