Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator Rachel Bloom will host the 64th annual Obie Awards, to be held Monday, May 20, at Terminal 5. Audible will serve as the event's presenting sponsor.

"I am THRILLED to be hosting the Obies this year and can confirm that a tiny hat will be incorporated into my wardrobe," Bloom said in a statement.

The judges' panel for the 64th annual Obie Awards, chaired as in previous years by critic Michael Feingold, includes past Obie winners Arin Arbus, Rachel Hauck, Riccardo Hernandez, Rajiv Joseph, and Kecia Lewis, as well as critic Jesse Oxfeld. The awards are presented by the American Theatre Wing and the Village Voice.
