In celebration of its 65-year legacy, the Drama Desk Awards is debuting a stunning new statuette, to be formally presented at the annual ceremony.

The custom-designed award brings distinctive new life to the iconic Drama Desk quill image, which represents the theater writers, critics and journalists who make up the Drama Desk organization and vote on the awards each year. The statuettes will stand 10-and-a-half inches tall, and feature the iconic quill image, with subtle comedy and tragedy drama masks cleverly cut into the sides, standing on an inkwell base. The statuette was designed in partnership with the team at Society Awards, who have also worked with the Golden Globes, Emmy Awards, ESPYS, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, MTV Movie Awards, and many more of the entertainment world’s leading awards.

The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards will be announced during a special presentation of Spectrum News NY1’s On Stage on Sunday, May 31, at 7:30 PM. The awards special also will stream on, and Additional details will be announced over the coming weeks
