The wonderful Judith Light just won the Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for Richard Greenberg’s “The Assembled Parties.” She also won in this same category last year for “Other Dessert Cities.” I told her she would win the Drama Desk and then the Tony, too, last year, and SHE DID! Now you can see her surprised reaction when I said history was about to repeat itself, and she would win again. AND SHE DID! She’s also nominated for a Tony so maybe that will happen AGAIN this year! It’s very unusual for there to be two consecutive Tony wins in a row. But then I don’t remember this ever happening with the Drama Desk either. So….
If anyone one can pull off this impossible feat, it’s the much loved Judith Light!
