Award description

The New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, awarded every year to the best new play of the season, with additional awards for musicals and foreign or American plays as well as citations for special achievement, is the United States' second oldest theatre award, after the Pulitzer Prize for drama. The first was awarded to Winterset by Maxwell Anderson, who won the following year as well for High Tor.

The award for Best Play carries with it a cash prize of US$2,500, and US$1,000 goes to the playwright who receives the award for best American or foreign play. The awards are made possible by a grant from the Lucille Lortel Foundation.
