'Once' picks up four Drama Desk awards

Acclaimed Broadway production “Once” snagged top honors at this year’s Drama Desk Awards.

The romantic 2006 film-turned-Broadway musical - about the relationship between an Irish musician and his Czech immigrant muse - scored four awards at the New York City ceremony Sunday night, according to USA Today.

The statues were for best musical, best director, lyrics (for singer-songwriters Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova) and best orchestrations.

The surprise hit is also up for 11 Tony Awards.

Other big winners of the night were Nina Raine’s “Tribes,” which won for outstanding play; "Newsies The Musical," which won for outstanding music and choreography; and the Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman," which won for outstanding play revival, director and lighting design.

Audra McDonald ("The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess") won for outstanding actress in a musical, and James Corden won the top acting award trophy for “One Man, Two Guvnors.”

Brooke Shields and Brian d'Arcy James co-hosted the ceremony.
