Congratulations are in order for some of our Broadway Black favorites! Denée Benton, Condola Rashad, and Corey Hawkins are among those honored with nominations from the oldest theatrical honor in America.

In the midst of Awards season, it can be hard to differentiate one award from the other. The Drama League Awards are unique in that they hinge on the Distinguished Performance Award. In a category of over 50 performers, this award goes to one artist a year, and can only be won once in an artist’s lifetime.

Nominations for the 83rd Annual Drama League Awards were announced April 19th by Patina Miller and Bebe Neuwirth at New York’s famed Sardi’s. The ceremony will be held May 19 at 11:30 am, and hosted by Audra McDonald and Will Swenson at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. Special honorees include Bill Berlin, Michael Greif, and Bette Midler, who will be honored with the Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre Award. Because of this, Middler was considered ineligible for the Distinguished Performance Award category for her work in Hello, Dolly!
