The 2013 Off-Broadway Drama Desk Winners

The 2013 Drama Desk Awards were announced on Sunday and although the nominations were pretty evenly distributed between Broadway and Off-Broadway, it was mostly Broadway shows that walked away with trophies.

Although the Drama Desk likes to tout that it's the only awards that lets Broadway and Off-Broadway duke it out in every category, maybe it's time to rethink that approach since the winners are so lopsided in Broadway's favor?

So a special congratulations to all of the Off-Broadway winners this year:

Outstanding Music: David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, Here Lies Love [Public Theater]

Outstanding Lighting Design:  Justin Townsend, Here Lies Love [Public Theater]

Outstanding Projection Design: Peter Nigrini, Here Lies Love [Public Theater]

Outstanding Solo Performance: Michael Urie, Buyer + Cellar [Rattlestick]

Outstanding Revue: Old Hats [Signature Theater]
Unique Theatrical Experience: Cirque Du Soleil: Totem [We're really not sure if Cirque du Soleil counts as Off-Broadway]
