First awarded in 1922 and formalized in 1935, The Drama League Awards are the oldest theatrical honors in America. They are the only major theatre awards chosen by a cross-section of the theatre community—specifically, by the industry professionals, producers, artists, audiences, and critics who are Drama League members nationwide.

Gabriel Stelian-Shanks is the artistic director of the Drama League; Bevin Ross is the executive director. For more information about the ceremony, visit
