Laura Benanti and current Hamilton star Javier Muñoz announced the 2017 Drama Desk Award nominations early this morning at Feinstein's/54 Below. In addition to giving us this year's short list, they, along with veteran host Michael Urie, offered some advice for first-time nominees and hints as to what's in store for the Town Hall ceremony on June 4. Take a look at what they all had to say, as well as highlights from the announcement ceremony, which included the suggestion of a new musical mashup, Sweeney Charity. We don't know what it is but we hear it's very dark.
