On April 19th, an excited crowd gathered at Sardi's Restaurant to hear Tony Award-winners Bebe Neuwirth and Patina Miller announce the nominees for the 83rd Annual Drama League Awards.
Five competitive Drama League Awards are given out each year for Outstanding Production of a Play, Outstanding Revival of a Play, Outstanding Production of a Musical, Outstanding Revival of a Musical, and the much-coveted Distinguished Performance Award that a performer can only win once in their careers.
In addition, we previously announced our 2017 Special Recognition Honorees: the legendary Bette Midler will receive the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theater Award; Bill Berloni will receive the Unique Contribution to the Theater Award for his work in animal training for Broadway; and Michael Greif, represented on Broadway this season with both Dear Evan Hansen and War Paint, will receive the Founders Award for Excellence in Directing.
The competitive categories are voted on by the entire Drama League memebrship base, including critics, artists, producers and audience members. The winners will be annoucned at the Awards Luncheon at the Marriott Marquis Times Square on Friday May 19th. Tickets to the luncheon can be purchased by calling 212-244-9494 x101.
