Wake Up With BWW 3/31: DIANA Announces Broadway Return Date, and More!

Plus, The Drama League Award nominees, Game of Thrones stage play in the works, and more!

Good morning, BroadwayWorld!

Diana will soon get a royal welcome- on Broadway and Netflix. Pending Broadway's anticipated return with government approval, and following health and safety guidelines, previews are scheduled to resume at the Longacre Theatre (220 West 48th Street) on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

The Drama League has just announced the 2021 Nominees and Special Recognition Honorees for The 87th Annual Drama League Awards. Keeping in the tradition of honoring the outstanding accomplishments of the theatrical community, as they have since 1935, this year the organization has established five unique categories to honor the extraordinary achievements of artists across the nation who created digital and socially-distanced theatrical productions.

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is currently working on developing Game of Thrones as a stage play for Broadway, the West End and Australia. Martin is writing the play alongside Duncan MacMillan, and it is set to be directed by Dominic Cooke. The first show is expected to launch in 2023.
