The InterAct Theatre Company of Philadelphia has been named the recipient of AEA's prestigious 2012 Rosetta LeNoire Award. The Award will be presented to InterAct's Founding/Producing Director Seth Rozin at Association's Eastern Regional Membership meeting on Friday April 13, 2012 in New York City.

The Rosetta LeNoire Award, established in 1988, recognizes outstanding artistic contributions to the universality of the human experience in American Theater. The Award is given to an individual, theater or producing organization with an exemplary record in the hiring or promotion of ethnic minorities, female actors and actors with disabilities through multi-racial and/or non-traditional casting. The award was named in honor of the actress Rosetta LeNoire.

The theatre is known for producing plays that explore issues of social, cultural and political relevance, dramatizing complex and often controversial issues with artistic integrity and fairness.
