Had fun at the Drama Desk Awards Sunday night. It's such a low-key event, with plenty of merriment onstage thanks to the perfect host: Michael Urie.
This year, it SpongeBob SquarePants cleaned up, but left room for Tina Fey to win for the book of Mean Girls. Fey was a knockout in a plaid suit and gave a wonderful speech about being kinder to people (with a liberal dose of jokes), while Andrew Garfield — triumphant for Angels in America — began his speech by wishing us all a happy Pride.
So many of the nominated plays were projects of which I'd never so much as heard. it made me want to seek them out, though.
The only shocker was legend Glenda Jackson beating out Laurie Metcalf; Metcalf was a surprise loser last year, too, but went on to Tony glory anyway, so ... there's always that.
