About Us


Our History

The CCC, founded in 1990, is a statewide organization of reviewers, feature writers, columnists, and broadcasters. Members of the Connecticut Critics Circle not only represent newspapers, but newspaper chains, magazines, radio programs, websites, and other media outlets, reaching millions throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York.

Our Mission Statement

The Connecticut Critics Circle was instituted to honor the actors, directors, designers and others who help make professional Connecticut theater so outstanding. Although we are near Broadway and the New York theater scene, Connecticut theater does not stand in New York’s shadow. The organization’s members also meet to discuss issues regarding theater criticism. Additionally, it invites prominent guest speakers to address the membership in meetings that are open to the public.
