My friend Hughe was in town yesterday shooting red carpet pictures at the Drama Desk Awards. I had fun being his assistant and directing him on names so he could get good shots. Visit Hughe at Confessions of a Paparazzi to see who else he shot.

The very regal Phylicia Rashad was there to present. I can't wait to see her on the Boards again!

Jan Maxwell was nominated for Oustanding Featured Actress in a Play for Coram Boy.

Debra Monk, won the Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for Curtains!

Boyd Gaines, just announced as starring as Herbie in the City Center Encores! of Gypsy, won Oustanding Featured Actor in a Play for Journey's End.

Jason Danieley, one of the stars of Curtains, performed a gorgeous number from the show.

Alexander Gemignani with his girlfriend Erin Ortman, stars as Jean Valjean in the current revival of Les Miserables and performed "Bring Him Home". Gorgeous voice!

Linda Balgord was nominated Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical for her role as Queen Elizabeth I in The Pirate Queen.

Andrea Burns, who is in the off-Broadway musical In the Heights. We heard her sing a terrific "Someone Woke Up" at Wall to Wall Sondheim.

Remember, if you borrow any of these pictures, please be sure to credit Hughe!

Thanks for sharing the pictures! I watched the show online and I really enjoyed it. You're right about Alexander Gemignani, he does have a beautiful voice. I saw Les Miserables on tour many years ago, and it remains one of my favorite scores. And of course, I loved seeing my fave, Kevin Spacey, as a presenter and hearing Eve Best lavish him with praise in her acceptance speech. I'm rooting for her to win the Tony!
