Established in memory of late thesp Tony Randall and overseen by his widow Heather Randall, the fund shifted its classical-theater focus in 2009 to dole out dollars that would help sustain legit companies in the wake of the economic downturn.

“The smaller, Off Broadway, artist-driven theater companies are the ones that are most in need and can really use these kinds of funds,” said Randall.

Many grants total between $5,000 and $10,000 each, to be put toward general operating costs.

Elevator Repair Service (“Gatz”), the Civilians, SITI Company, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and Soho Rep will receive coin in recognition of each org’s daring body of work. Epic Theater Ensemble snags a grant for its widespread education intiatives with Lark taking one for its longstanding writers’ development programs.

Classic Stage Company, Repertorio Espanol and Signature will receive grants based on artistic and organizational excellence.

Four companies will continue to receive multi-year support from the fund, including the Acting Company, the Actors Fund, Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York Theater Workshop and Target Margin.

Coin is set to be disbursed in lump sums in the fall.
