Before his arrival in Westport, Buyer & Cellar star Michael Urie (TV's "Ugly Betty" & "The Good Wife") will host this year's Drama Desk Awards ceremony at NYC's Town Hall, June 5 at 8pm.

Mr. Urie received the 2013 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance for his portrayal of Buyer & Cellar's Alex More during the show's original off-Broadway run. Starting June 14, he'll be reprising his award-winning, tour-de-force role, as the original off-Broadway production takes the Playhouse stage. New York’s public television station THIRTEEN will tape performance of Buyer & Cellar during its Playhouse run for later broadcast on “Theater Close-Up,” the series that showcases Off-Broadway and regional not-for-profit, professional productions for Tri-state viewers.

The Drama Desk Awards honors "artistic excellence in the New York professional theater, in its multitude of forms and styles and on stages of various sizes and configurations." The awards ceremony will be live-streamed by TheaterMania at the link below:
