Theater Award Winners

Design by

Motif seeks to recognize the excellence in local theater at many different levels. We polled the critics and the theater companies themselves – about their own best work, and the best work they saw – and then over 2,500 of you, our theater-going readers, voted for your favorites. The results were announced at our awards show on August 25 at Fete in Providence. A few hundred of RI theater’s brightest stars celebrated, with food from Sammy’s Kitchen and Gotta Q.
Thanks to all who turned out, and all of you who voted!
