Matthew Lopez’s latest project is in a League of its own…
The 43-year-old Puerto Rican playwright and screenwriter’s two-part play The Inheritance was named the outstanding play of the 2019-20 theater season by New York’s Drama League.
The 86th Annual Drama League Awards – announced virtually in lieu of an in-person gathering – covered the shortened theater season for both Broadway and Off Broadway.
The Inheritance opened at the Young Vic Theatre in London in 2018, before transferring to the Noel Coward Theatre in the West End. The production was directed by Stephen Daldry. The play premiered on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on September 27, 2019 in previews, with the official opening on November 17.
Set in New York three decades after the height of the AIDS epidemic, The Inheritance wrestles with what it means to be a gay man today, exploring relationships and connections across age and social class and asking what one generation’s responsibilities may be to the next. The play is a loose adaptation of E.M. Forster‘s novel Howards End.
Meanwhile, Moulin Rouge!, starring 43-year-old part Dominican & part Puerto Rican actress Karen Olivo, was named musical of the year.
Olivo stars as Satine in the musical, which is based on the 2001 film Moulin Rouge! It’s directed by Baz Luhrmann and written by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce.
Chosen by the Drama League’s nationwide organization of theater artists, industry professionals and audience members, this year’s award winners also include Moulin Rouge! actor Danny Burstein (Distinguished Performance Award); Broadway’s A Soldier’s Play (Outstanding Revival of a Play) and Off Broadway’s Little Shop of Horrors (Outstanding Revival of a Musical).
Previously announced special awards and honors went to director Marianne Elliott, playwright Terrence McNally, and director/playwright James Lapine.
The 65th Annual Drama Desk Awards honoring the best in New York theater were announced Saturday, with the 48-year-old Puerto Rican actress winning the Outstanding Actress in a Play prize.
Colón-Zayas won the Drama Desk award, the first of her career, for her acclaimed performance in Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven. The play centers onthe harrowing, humorous, and heartbreaking inner workings of a women’s halfway house in New York City. It’s helmed by John Ortiz, LAByrinth Theater Company‘s artistic director, in his Off-Broadway directing debut.
Matthew Lopez is another first-time Drama Desk winner…
The 43-year-old Puerto Rican playwright and screenwriter.picked up the Drama Desk award for Outstanding Play for his hghly regarded work The Inheritance.
Inspired by the novel Howards Endby E. M. Forster, the play premiered in London at the Young Vic in March 2018, before transferring to Broadway in November 2019.
Normally, the awards are announced at a gathering of theater artists and critics in New York City. But this year, the gathering was replaced by a pre-recorded ceremony because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The awards show had initially been scheduled to air May 31, but was postponed due to the Black Lives Matter protests in New York City.
The ceremony aired on NY1 and streamed on NY1.com and DramaDeskAwards.com. The Drama Desk Awards recipients were decided by theater critics, journalists, editors and publishers covering theater.

They’ll be honored during this year’s virtual conference taking place June 9-13. The 21st edition of the will include online panels, workshops, showcases and networking opportunities, free of charge.
A Wonder Women of Latin Music panel, moderated by Guerrero, is set to take place on June 11, featuring some of the honorees including León, Emily Simonitsch (Live Nation), Rosa Lagarrigue (RLM), Inma Grass (Altafonte) and Luana Pagani (Seitrack US).

The 50-year-old Mexican actor picked up the Best Actor prize in the International Narrative Feature Film category at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Hernández earned the award for his performance in writer-director Gerardo Naranjo’s tragic love story Kokoloko.
“For his raw and brave performance, taking a giant leap of faith, hand-to-hand with his director” wrote the jury in a statement.
Set in a tropical seaside village, the film tells the story of Marisol who pursues personal freedom while navigating between the two men in her life—her lover, and her violent cousin who is keeping her captive.
Alejandro Mejiawas named the winner of the award for Best Cinematography in a Documentary Film category.
The Mexican cinematographer won the award for his work as the director of photography on Rodrigo Reyes’ 499.
In a statement the jury said: “The filmmakers did an incredible job of weaving this fictional story into what’s happening today with the disappeared and to marry such grand visions that cinema can only do.”
Gaspar Antillopicked up the Best New Narrative Director Award for his film Nadie sabe que estoy aquí( Nobody Knows I’m Here).
“A film that felt vital and alive, and every time we thought we knew who the protagonist was or what the world was it evolved and revealed more of itself to us,” said the jury in a written statement. The film follows Memo, who lives on a remote Chilean sheep farm, hiding a beautiful singing voice from the outside world. A recluse with a glittery flair, he can’t stop dwelling on the past, but what will happen once someone finally listens?
While the public screenings of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival were postponed, the festival decided to move forward with their juried competitions, and announced the award winners via Instagram.
