During the award season, as journalists we interview the same people over and over. As the winners came to the press room at the Drama Desk awards, we wanted to know what made these winners humble. Their answers are inspirational. First up we talked to Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Musical Lindsay Mendez and The Phil DeLuca winner for Outstanding Choreographer for a Musical Justin Peck, both from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, Joshua Harmon Drama Desk winner for Outstanding Play for Admissions and Andre Bishop from Lincoln Center Theatre for winning Outstanding Revival of a Musical for My Fair Lady.
We expect Lindsey, Justin and Andre to also take home the Tony Award. If they do, they will have won the Outer Critic, The Drama Desk and the Tony, for what makes them outstanding this year.
