Drama Desk Awards 2009 - Die Nominierungen

Am 1. Mai 2009 werden die diesjährigen Drama Desk Awards vergeben, ein Preis, der seit 1955 von Schriftstellern, Kritikern und Redakteuren für Theater in New York verliehen wird.

Was die diesjährigen Nominierungen betrifft, so sollte man in die Beurteilung mit einbeziehen, dass sich die Verantwortlichen entschieden haben, eine der herausragendsten aktuellen Broadway-Shows, “Next to Normal”, nicht bei ihren Ãœberlegungen, wer einen Preis bekommen könnte, mit einzubeziehen. “Next to Normal” lief im Vorjahr als Off-Broadway-Show, und für die Broadway-Produktion forderten die Produzenten eine Einstufung als “völlig neue Show”, was die Jury vorerst ablehnte. Die Folge des Disputs zwischen Jury und Produzenten: Man verpasste Fristen, die Show fiel komplett aus dem Rennen um Drama Desk und Outer Critics Circle Awards heraus. Bei den Tony Awards jedoch ist “Next to Normal” in allen Kategorien teilnahmeberechtigt. Insofern sind weder Drama Desk noch Outer Critics Circle Awards in diesem Jahr so etwas wie Trendbarometer für die Tony Awards.

Ansonsten heißt es bei den Drama Desk Awards: Dolly Parton Superstar. Gleich 15 Nominierungen heimste die Country-Sängerin mit ihrer Show “9 to 5″ ein, dicht gefolgt von “Shrek” (12 Awards) und “Billy Elliot” (10 Awards). Möge also ein Wunder geschehen, und möge “Next to Normal” DER Abräumer bei den Tonys 2009 werden.
