Nominations for the 62nd Annual Drama Desk Awards were announced this morning, April 27, at 10am by Laura Benanti (She Loves Me) and Javier Muñoz (Hamilton).

Michael Urie (Buyer and Cellar), a past host and two-time Drama Desk Award winner himself, will return to emcee the event, which is set to take place on Sunday, June 4, at Town Hall. For the sixth consecutive year, TheaterMania will present the ceremony.

The Drama Desk Awards are an annual celebration of the best of Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off-Broadway talent. Each year, the Drama Desk's voters select winners from the pool of artists nominated in each of its 30 categories. Joey Parnes Productions will produce and manage the show, which will be written by Bill Rosenfield and directed by Mark Waldrop.
