The Outer Critics Circle Awards are presented annually for theatrical achievements both on Broadway and Off-Broadway. They were begun during the 1949–1950 theatre season. The awards are decided upon by theatre critics who review for out-of-town newspapers, national publications, and other media outlets outside of New York City. Simon Saltzman, a long-time member of the OCC executive committee and theatre reviewer, serves as president.
