The 68th Annual Drama Desk Awards will be presented on Monday, June 10, 2024.
 
The Drama Desk Awards are the only major New York City theater honors for which productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway compete against each other in the same categories.

To be eligible for consideration for Drama Desk Awards this season, productions must open no later than Thursday, April 25, 2024. The nominations will be announced on Monday, April 29. Details and venues will be announced in the coming months.
 
As was the case last year, all performance categories will be gender-neutral and they are: Outstanding Leading Performance in a Play, Outstanding Leading Performance in a Musical, Outstanding Featured Performance in a Play, and Outstanding Featured Performance in a Musical. 
 
Each of these categories has twice as many nominees as the former gendered categories and voters will cast two votes for each category. These categories will also have two winners each. If there is a tie, there may be more than two winners in a category.
 
Staci Levine will produce this year’s ceremony, as she did last year.

I find the Drama Desks exciting because they celebrate off-broadway as well and they are much harder to predict.

Does anyone have any ideas what off-Broadway shows could be favored to be nominated or win for various categories?

I assumed Rob Madge would win for Best Solo Performance. Any idea who might take that now?  Perhaps Patrick Page?
