Rain did not deter the splendid showing of glamorous women and good looking men on the red carpet as the 2016 Drama Desk Award evening got under way prior to the show and announcement of Winners that took place on June 5 at Town Hall.
The evening, hosted by the always jolly Michael Urie, had a few surprises but it was Shuffle Along that brought in the most awards as outstanding musical and The Humans for outstanding play. In the musical revival category, She Loves Me led along with A View From the Bridge for play.
Top awards went to Jessica Lange, Michael Shannon, Frank Langella, Jane Krakowski and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.  See the full list of winners below.
On the Red Carpet and in the press room for Theater Pizzazz was JK Clarke behind the camera and Michael Stever filming interviews along with Sandi Durell.
