Michael Urie hosted the Drama Desk Awards at Town Hall tonight and we've got the complete list of winners below. Unlike next week's Tony Awards, which only honor Broadway productions, the Drama Desk considers all New York City theatre: Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off. That said, many of the big winners were Broadway productions, including SpongeBob SquarePants, which took home six trophies, and Carousel and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which both snagged five.
