Nominees for the 62nd Annual Drama Desk Awards, announced this past Thursday, include J.T. Rogers’s “Oslo,” Paula Vogel’s “Indecent,” and Steven Levenson’s “If I Forget.”
Those three plays were each nominated for Outstanding Play. Nominees for Outstanding Musical included “The Band’s Visit,” while “Falsettos” and the Barrow Street Theater’s site-specific staging of “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” gained nominations for Outstanding Revival of a Musical. Lillian Hellman’s recently-opened “The Little Foxes” was nominated for Outstanding Revival of a Play.
Rachel Chavkin, Anne Kauffmann and Jerry Zaks all received nods for directing, Chavkin for “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,” Kauffmann for “A Life” at Playwrights Horizons, and Zaks for “Hello, Dolly!”
The Drama Desk Awards are the only major theatrical awards in New York City that allow Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway productions to compete in the same categories. They will be awarded in a ceremony on Sunday, June 4.
