NEW YORK -

Trey Anastasio of Phish didn't get much mileage out of his Broadway musical "Hands on a Hardbody," but it impressed some theater critics.

Anastasio and co-writer Don Hart are nominated for Drama Desk Awards for outstanding music and outstanding orchestration.

David Byrne and Fatboy Slim will compete against them in the outstanding music category for their work on "Here Lies Love."

Bette Midler is nominated for outstanding solo performance for her one-woman show, "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers."

The awards will be given May 19 in New York.
