AWARDS SEASON 2016: Drama League Award Winners
The Drama League Award winners are in and Hamilton grabbed the outstanding production award, plus one for creator/actor Lin-Manuel Miranda.

AWARDS SEASON 2016: Drama Desk Award Nominations
The Drama Desk Award nominees were announced this morning and producers for Shuffle Along, which had been snubbed by the other award nominating committees, must have been pleased with the Outstanding Musical and other nods.

AWARDS SEASON 2016: Drama League Award Nominations
Another exciting list of nominees has been released, and it features all of the same shows as the Outer Critics Circle nom list.
