Awards Drama Desk Awards Postpone Announcement of 2022 Nominees

The awards honor Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway productions.

Nominees for the 66th Annual Drama Desk Awards, honoring Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway productions, will now be announced May 16, a postponement from the originally announced May 2; the eligibility cut-off remains May 1. A date and location for the ceremony remain to be announced.

The news follows a similar postponement of this year's Tony nominations, though no reason was given for the Drama Desk schedule change.

This year's awards will be the first since 2020, when A Strange Loop and The Inheritance took home the honors for Outstanding Musical and Outstanding Play, respectively, via a virtual ceremony.

This year's nominating committee comprises Martha Wade Steketee, Peter Filichia, Kenji Fujishima, Juan Michael Porter II, Ayanna Prescod, Zachary Stewart, and Diep Tran.
