Broadway Brands Will Present The Drama Desk Awards

Broadway Brands Will Present The Drama Desk Awards

Broadway Brands, publisher of Broadway News (www.broadway.news) and Broadway Briefing, and the Drama Desk jointly announced this morning that Broadway Brands will present the Drama Desk Awards beginning with the upcoming 2019 ceremony!

The 64th annual event will take place on June 2, 2019 at 8:00 PM at The Town Hall. The cut-off for nominations will be April 24, 2019. Nominations will be announced April 25, 2019.

Joey Parnes Productions will produce the ceremony, as it has since 2012, and Matt Britten, Broadway Brands CEO, will serve as executive producer of the Drama Desk Awards.

Following the 2019 ceremony, Broadway Brands will explore future enhancements for the event, including negotiating a new television/streaming deal for the Drama Desk Awards beginning with the 2020 ceremony.

“Matt Britten and his innovative company, Broadway Brands, are a perfect match for our organization,” said Drama Desk co-presidents Charles Wright and David Barbour. “Matt cares deeply about New York theater and, especially, about the health and welfare of theater journalism. At a time when platforms for theater writing are shrinking and going out of business, Broadway Brands is finding new ways to cover the industry and encourage lively, intelligent discussion of drama and theater artists. We’re delighted by this new association with Broadway Brands and excited about the 64th annual presentation of the Drama Desk Awards in June.”

“The Drama Desk Awards are one of the great, long-standing traditions in our community, created by theater journalists to celebrate outstanding theater,” Britten said. “At Broadway Brands, we celebrate the history of the industry while we are even more excited for its future. When we learned that the Drama Desk Awards were in need of new support, we knew immediately that we wanted to be a part of it. Broadway News, one of our brands, is focused on revitalizing theater journalism, and so it just makes sense on all levels to partner with this storied institution. We look forward to building a new network of support within the theater community to take this important event into its seventh decade and beyond,” he added.

“Broadway Brands is a perfect fit for the Drama Desks,” said Joey Parnes. “We’ve had a great time working with the Drama Desks for the past seven years and are looking forward to our continued collaboration.”
