The Drama Desk, an organization of writers, editors, publishers, and broadcasters covering theater in New York City, has announced that Drama Desk Award-winning actor Michael Urie (Torch Song) will host the 64th Annual Drama Desk Awards on Sunday, June 2, at the Town Hall in New York City. This marks Urie's fourth consecutive time hosting the ceremony.
Nominations for the 64th Annual Drama Desk Awards will be announced on April 25.
Matt Britten, Broadway Brands CEO, will serve as executive producer and Joey Parnes Productions will produce the ceremony, as it has since 2012.

The Drama Desk Awards, which are presented annually, honor outstanding achievement by professional theater artists on Broadway, off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway. The Drama Desk Awards are the only major theater honors for which productions on Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off-Broadway compete against each other in the same categories.
