Drama League Awards Announced For Excellence in Theatre in New York City

On this past Friday May 20, 2016, the Drama League officially announced the winners of the 82nd annual awards at New York City's Marriott Marquis Hotel.  The Drama League Awards pay honor to "outstanding" work in the New York theater.
This year's outstanding production for a Broadway musical went to Hamilton, the mega-hit show that is the talk of the town (actually the talk of the world right now).  If you need tickets you may want to consider a call to my company Applause-Tickets as we have access to lots of ticket inventory.
Outstanding production of a play went to The Humans, a terrific new play which tells the story of the dysfunctions that go on in a family that travel from Pennsylvania to New York City to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with their younger daughter.  It's filled with lots of great humor but serious at the same time.  I really enjoyed The Humans on Broadway.  If you need access to The Humans tickets, my company Applause-Tickets can help with this one as well.
I thought you might want to see a list of the 82nd Annual Drama League Award nominees and winners so you'll find that just below with asterisks next to the names of the "winners".
