(See the 55th Annual Drama Desk Awards Events)

As a member of the Drama Desk, I was thrilled to join friends and colleagues, as well as performers, producers, directors, choreographers, designers, and more, all winners of the 2009/2010 Drama Desk Awards, linked above. The engraved trophies were lined up in Il Punto's warmly lit and wood-paneled private room. Robert R. Blume, Executive Producer of the Drama Desk Awards, and Les Schecter, Drama Desk Awards Public Relations, once again organized a great event. Tony Pecora, owner of Il Punto, was a dynamic host, greeting and embracing his guests. The wines were outstanding, as were the passed hors d'oeuvres, proving, as always, that Il Punto Ristorante is the party destination for connoisseurs of fine Italian cuisine and joyful hospitality. Call Il Punto at 212.244.0088 and reserve a table or seat at the friendly bar to experience their dining and ambiance yourself. Ask for a tour of their two private rooms, both perfect for business and private events. And, be sure to watch for ticket listings of the 56th Annual Drama Desk Awards next May 2011, a gala evening not to be missed!
