The Drama Desk Awards, which annually celebrate the best of Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Broadway theater, will be held tomorrow night in New York City’s LaGuardia Concert Hall. The event, which commences at 9pm, will be hosted by the hilarious cast of Broadway-bound musical [title of show]. The Drama Desks are sometimes seen as an indicator of how the Tony Awards will go, so Broadway buffs will want to take note of the results. However, the most likely candidate to take home the Tony for Best Musical this year, In the Heights, isn’t even nominated for the Drama Desk – because it was eligible last year as an Off-Broadway show (it lost to juggernaut Spring Awakening). The Drama Desk Awards broadcast can be heard live on XM satellite radio’s Broadway channel.
