Each week, all season long, hundreds of TBA Awards adjudicators attend and evaluate eligible productions all over the Bay Area. Based on the overall production scores from these adjudicators, Theatre Bay Area publishes a weekly list of productions that have reached the required threshold of scoring to be deemed “TBA Awards Recommended.” All adjudicator votes throughout the season are then tabulated to determine that year’s TBA Awards Finalists and TBA Awards Recipients.
