The Drama League, is keeping the tradition of honoring the outstanding accomplishments of the theatrical community, as they have since 1935. This year The Drama League established five unique categories to honor the extraordinary achievements of artists across the nation who created digital and socially-distanced theatrical productions during this challenging year of suspension for live arts.
