Presenting The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards Winners

The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards were set to be given out during a special presentation of NY1’s Broadway focused “On Stage” program a few weeks ago but the station needed to pause that broadcast based on the nightly protesting and rioting that had been going on in our metropolis. Initially planned to be a live broadcast at New York’s Town Hall, the program became a virtual one when the problems surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic caused the entire city to come to a standstill. Earlier this evening the broadcast ran and the winners were given their trophies. Here is the complete rundown of the winners.
