2011-2012 ITBA Patrick Lee Award Recipients


As a member of The Independent Theater Bloggers Association (the “ITBA”), I'm happy to share with you the 2012 recipients of the Fourth Annual Patrick Lee Theater Blogger Awards, (“the
Patricks”). Patrick Lee was one of the ITBA's founding members. Patrick passed away
suddenly in June 2010, and was an erudite, passionate, and tireless advocate for theater
in all its forms. Patrick was also the ITBA's first awards director, and was a regular
contributor to Theatermania and TDF Stages.
