NEW YORK (AP) - Two musicals more dark than frothy _ “Death Takes a Holiday” and “Follies” _ received the most nominations Friday from the Drama Desk, which honors both Broadway and off-Broadway productions.

The star-studded Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s “Follies,” about two couples looking back on their mistakes, and off-Broadway’s “Death Takes a Holiday,” adapted from a story about Death taking human form and falling in love, each nabbed 10 nominations.

Matthew Broderick’s show “Nice Work If You Can Get It” earned eight nominations. Six went to “By the Way, Meet Vera Stark,” “Leap of Faith,” “Queen of the Mist” and “Richard III.”

The awards will be presented during a ceremony hosted by Brian d’ Arcy James and Donna Murphy on June 3 at The Town Hall in Manhattan.
