The nominations for the 2019 Drama Desk Awards were announced April 25 by NY1's Frank DiLella and Roma Torre. As previously reported, Michael Urie will host the 64th annual ceremony, set for June 2 at Town Hall.
The Broadway revival of Oklahoma!, seen earlier this season at St. Ann's Warehouse, led the pack with 12 nominations, including nods in Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Director for Daniel Fish, and for five of its stars. Tootsie and Ars Nova's Rags Parkland Sings the Songs of the Future followed closely behind with 11 and nine nominations, respectively.
The Drama Desk is an organization of writers, editors, publishers, and broadcasters covering theatre in New York City. The Awards are one of few major theatre honors for which productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off Broadway compete against each other in the same categories.
