Drama League Award Winners Announced

The 2010 Drama League Awards were presented on May 21 at a gala luncheon co-hosted by Vanessa Williams and Michael Urie. The event was held in the Marriott Marquis Hotel’s ballroom and featured a dais filled with more than 60 nominated stars from Broadway and off-Broadway shows. Alfred Molina took home the day’s biggest prize, the Distinguished Performance Award (which can be won only once in an actor’s career) for playing Mark Rothko in Red. A complete list of winners follows:

Distinguished Performance Award
Alfred Molina, Red

Distinguished Production of a Musical
Sondheim on Sondheim

Distinguished Production of a Play

Distinguished Revival of a Musical
La Cage aux Folles

Distinguished Revival of a Play
A View from the Bridge

In addition to the competitive awards, previously announced honorees included Nathan Lane (Distinguished Achievement in Musical Theatre) Kenny Leon (Julia Hansen Award for Excellence in Directing) and Macy’s Parade and Entertainment Group (Unique Contribution to the Theatre Award).

At this point in the game, Molina seems like the only realistic option to win the Best Actor in a Play Tony, and the same goes for Kenny Leon in the Director of a Play category.
