The organization is best known for its annual Steinberg/ATCA New play Award recognizing work developed and premiered in regional theaters. It also makes the recommendation for the Regional Theatre Tony Award.

ATCA was founded on August 3, 1974, at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Ct.

The group was created to provide a professional home for theatre critics outside of the  New York City metropolitan area.

ATCA is an affiliate organization of the International Theatre Critics Association.
