Shuffle Along Wins Top Prize At This Year's Drama Desk Awards

Now I know what you're thinking. What happened to Hamilton? Shouldn't that have been the big winner at last night's Drama Desk Awards? Well it would be if it was nominated. What's that you say? How could one of the biggest shows of the past ten years not be nominated, let alone win a handful of awards. Well it did. At last years awards when it won eight 2015 Drama Desk Awards, including Best Musical of the Year.

Which is why it was not eligible for any awards this year. Now don't feel bad for Hamilton. After all it's expected to win multiple awards at this Sunday's Tony Awards. But enough about Hamilton. You came here to find out the winners from last night's Drama Desk Awards. So here they are. And don't forget to watch the Tony Awards on June 12 at 8pm on CBS.
