Will Tonys Match The Drama Desks?

The 59th Annual Drama Desk Awards, honoring shows that opened on Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway during the 2013-14 New York theatre season, were presented last night at The Town Hall in Manhattan. Winners included Neil Patrick Harris (pictured) for “Hedwig” and Audra “when she farts she wins a Tony” McDonald for “Lady Day.” “A Gentleman’s Guide etc etc” won Best Musical and “All the Way” won Best Play. I expect most of the winners to be repeating their acceptance speeches on Sunday at the Tony Awards. Oh, I should be fair and mention that Jefferson Mays tied with Harris for the Drama Desk award. But Mays has a Tony and doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of beating Harris on Sunday.
