2016 Tom Murrin
SAVE THE DATE! WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th, 2017
Dixon Place Theater, NYC
Also known as “The Tommy,” this annual award is granted to a NYC-based early career artist or company who embodies Tom Murrin’s generous artistic spirit and gift for unearthing big, meaningful ideas by creating resourceful, exuberant, mysterious, enlightening, theatrical, luminous and remarkable performance. The award was created in 2013 to honor Murrin, who passed away in 2012. He was an inspiration, a mentor and a role model for countless young and emerging artists. The award is intended to provide a transformative career opportunity to its recipient, who receives a yearlong residency, followed by a 3-night run at Dixon Place and an honorarium.
For my Tommy Award presentation at Dixon Place, I will be organizing a one-night-only extravaganza on Wednesday, September 6th!!! Stay tuned for details.
Special thanks to the Tom Murrin Award selection committee, Patricia Sullivan, and the generous support from Dixon Place.
