"Each year, the O'Neill begins its selection processes anew. By the end of November 2016, over 1,300 plays had been submitted for consideration for the National Playwrights Conference and 210 music theater works had been submitted for consideration for the National Music Theater Conference. Many months were spent reading, re-reading, reviewing, and corresponding, and at the end of it, three new musicals and eight new plays were selected for development during the 2017 summer season."
