And You are Invited....
The Drama Desk will celebrate 65 years of excellence in theater and 60 consecutive years of its coveted awards with a Diamond Jubilee party Sunday, Nov. 15 at Sardi’s.
Former Drama Desk winners will be on hand to celebrate with the organization whose membership consists of writers, editors, publishers and broadcasters who cover the New York theater scene. The Drama Desk Awards, currently produced by TheaterMania, are unique in that Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway shows compete in the same categories. Awards nominators and voters often see hundreds of shows in a season before voting.
The Diamond Jubilee will include a short program with special presentations, recognition of the Drama Desk winners in attendance, hors d’oeuvres and beverages, souvenirs and a toast to the organization’s past and future.
A limited number of tickets to the intimate gathering have been reserved for the general public. To reserve tickets ($65), visit http://tinyurl.com/Dram-Desk-Jubilee or call (866) 811-4111. The event will take place from 5 to 7 pm Sunday, Nov. 15 at Sardi’s, 234 West 44th St.
“The Drama Desk consists of a modest number of media professionals whose awards, presented each spring, celebrate outstanding accomplishments on stages all around New York City,” said President Charles Wright. “This month’s get-together at Sardi’s, coming at the halfway point between the 2015 and 2016 awards, is an opportunity for the Drama Desk family (along with friends) to celebrate our organization’s longevity and the accomplishments of our founders and members over the past 65 years.”
