The Wing has been to serves and supports the theatre by celebrating excellence, nurturing the public’s appreciation of theatre, and providing unique educational and access opportunities for both practitioners and audiences. Traditionally, ATW has done this by encouraging members of the theatre community to share their off-stage time and
talent directly with the theatre audience at large–whether it was singing for the troops in the Stage Door Canteen of the 1940’s, or sharing their stories on a podcast today. Best known for creating The Antoinette Perry ‘Tony’ Awards®, now presented with The Broadway League, ATW has developed the best-known national platform for the recognition of theatrical achievement on Broadway. Yet ATW’s reach extends beyond Broadway and beyond New York, with educational and media work that offers the very best in theatre to artists and students around the world.
