"Off" Drama Desk Winners 2008

The Drama Desk makes much about their inclusion of Off and Off Off Broadway Shows, but when it comes to taking the stage and collecting actual awards, alt.Broadway wins are few and far between. It's kind of like being invited to Thanksgiving Dinner and still having to sit at the "kids" table. So congratulations to the two non-Broadway shows that collected awards last night:
Linda Lavin, The New Century (Featured Actress in a Play)
Forbidden Broadway: Rude Awakening (Outstanding Revue)

And let's not forget that Passing Strange, winner for Outstanding Musical, did start out Off Broadway. But when the Unique Theatrical Experience award goes to a Broadway show - things ain't looking good!
