Figured since we now have threads for the 2017 Outer Critics Circle and Drama League awards, we might as well get the last major non-Tony awards thread up!

Nominations Announcement: Thursday, April 27 at 10 a.m., announced by Laura Benanti and Javier Muñoz

Ceremony: Sunday, June 4 at 8 p.m., hosted by Michael Urie

Hoping Hadestown gets lots of love, particularly with the absence of Great Comet and DEH.

I was literally thinking when this was going to be. Hoping Christy grabs another nom.

The Drama Desks are sort of hard to predict, since so much is under consideration, but I'd love to see some attention for Underground Railroad Game. The Lortels gave it quite a few nods, and I think it deserves them here too. 

I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

So DEH is ineligible here too? Poor ANDY KARL - he'll sweep the precursors and then lose the TONY LOL... Ugh... Wish he could win the TONY :)

Laura Benanti looks absolutely beautiful (as always).

And she just had a baby? Holy moly. Give her that Eliza Doolittle role now.

The Lightning Thief got a nomination over Kid Victory?! I'm happy for Hadestown. Let's hope for a transfer.

Laura Benanti was hilarious.  It's unfortunate that I'm sick right now because I was laughing so much I'm now wheezing.
