Rotimi Agbabiaka's Type/Caste which took top honors in the category of Outstanding Production of a Solo Play. Rotimi also took home the TBA obelisk for Outstanding Male Actor in a Play for his show-stopping role in BACCE's Bootycandy.

Brava and BACCE won recognition in 2014 as Outstanding Ensemble for Sweet Maladies which featured Brit Frazier, Kehinde Koyejo, Lisa Anne Porter and Stefanee Martin.
TBA Awards began in 2014 as an alternative to the Bay Area Critics Circle award introducing a peer-adjudication system that allows TBA member companies and their staff access to productions and voting rights. This year's extravaganza was hosted by acting and circus phenoms, Tristan Cunningham and Jeff Raz. Donald Lacy received the Legacy Award and Jeff Carpenter was the recipient of the Charles Dean Award.
