Photo Coverage: Drama League Awards

‚Äč

The 2006-07 Drama League Awards were presented at the 73rd Annual Drama League Awards Ceremony and Luncheon on Friday, May 11, 2007 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square. Bernadette Peters, Chita Rivera, Christine Ebersole, Tony Kushner, Liev Schreiber, Audra McDonald, Ashley Brown and Jonathan Groff were among the presenters; Gary Beach hosted.

The awards were as follow: Distinguished Performance Award - Liev Schreiber; Distinguished Production of a Musical - Spring Awakening; Distinguished Production of a Play - The Coast of Utopia; Distinguished Revival of a Musical - Company; and Distinguished Revival of a Play - Journey's End. 

The Broadway transfers of Grey Gardens and The Little Dog Laughed were previously nominated for Drama League Awards during their earlier Off-Broadway runs in 2006, and are thus ineligible this season. The production of Deuce removed itself from consideration for this year's awards, and will be considered next season. The cut-off date for this season's Drama League Awards was Sunday, April 22. At Friday's ceremony, the Drama League also presented its three previously-announced annual specialty awards: John Kander and Fred Ebb (posthumously) received the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre Award, Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) received the Julia Hansen Award for Excellence in Directing, and the not-for-profit charity organization Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS received the Unique Contribution to the Theatre Award.
