Andy Blankenbuehler, choreographer of the Drama Desk Award-winning musical Hamilton, was presented with a special Drama Desk Award at Sunday evening's ceremony at Town Hall. The honor was described as follows:
"For his inspired and heart-stopping choreography in Hamilton, which is indispensible to the musical's storytelling. His body of work is versatile, yet a dynamic and fluid style is consistently evident. When it's time to 'take his shot,' Blankenbuehler hits the bull's-eye."
Blankenbuehler accepted the award with a moving speech, making his way through the score of Hamilton as he cites all of his creative inspirations. Take a look at the clip below.
