The Off-Broadway Committee has added a category for Outstanding Projection Design.

The date is now set for the 32nd annual Lucille Lortel Awards. The ceremony, which honors the best of off-Broadway, will be held on May 7 at the NYU Skirball Center. Nominations will be announced for the 19 competitive categories—including, for the first time, Outstanding Projection Design—on April 4.

The Off-Broadway League will also honor three theater luminaries at this year’s ceremony. Tony-winning costume designer William Ivey Long will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award, Pulitzer Prize-winning Lynn Nottage will be inducted onto the Playwrights’ Sidewalk outside the Lucille Lortel Theatre and Roundabout veteran Harold Wolpert will receive the Edith Oliver Service to Off-Broadway Award.

Long has won Tonys for his costume work on Nine, Crazy For You, The Producers, Hairspray, Grey Gardens and Cinderella. His designs can currently be seen in A Bronx Tale. Nottage won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Ruined; she will make her Broadway playwriting debut this spring with Sweat. Wolpert recently concluded his 11-year tenure as Managing Director of the Roundabout Theatre Company.
