The Drama Desk Awards, the only major New York City theater honors for which productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway compete against each other in the same categories, returns to The Town Hall next Spring.
Drama Desk welcomed new members at a members-only social event on October 19 at the Episcopal Actors' Guild Hall.
Ira J. Bilowit, 90, a long-time member and former vice president of the Drama Desk, died on Friday, July 22, after several months of illness.
The 61st annual Drama Desk Awards celebration was a merry affair. Michael Urie hosted the event at Town Hall on Sunday, June 5, 2016. Thirty-eight winners were announced in 37 categories, which included 5 Special Awards (John Doyle, The Color Purple, and Bartlett Sher, Fiddler on the Roof, tied for Outstanding Direction of a Musical).
