Due to breaking news events in New York this weekend, Spectrum News NY1 and the Drama Desk organization have made the decision to postpone tonight's planned airing of the 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards.

In a statement, Drama Desk Co-Presidents Charles Wright and David Barbour said, "The Drama Desk celebrates all that's outstanding in the work of New York's diverse theater artists and craftspeople. We regret the postponement of our awards ceremony tonight but, as an organization committed to the principle that all voices must be heard, we stand together with our black colleagues against the racial injustice and violence in our nation and city. We are grateful to Spectrum News NY1 for its comprehensive news coverage of this painful moment."

More details on a rescheduled date and time will be made available soon.
