Relive Michael Urie's Anastasia-Style Journey to the Drama Desk Awards

Urie knows how to make an entrance…even if it is by wheelchair.

The 62st Annual Drama Desk Awards were held on June 4 at Town Hall. As the best of the theater community gathered to celebrate another successful year onstage, host Michael Urie encountered a curious problem: a billboard knocked him unconscious on his way to the theater. Amnesia ensued, Anastasia-style, and Urie had to be coaxed back to the stage by "beloved character actors" Judith Light, George Takei, Danny DeVito, Jackie Hoffman, and Rum Tum Tugger. It all added up to an uproarious opening entrance video, which you can watch here exclusively.
