New York Theatres Are Now Eligible to Receive Regional Theatre Tony Award
13 Jun 2013
The Tony Awards Administration Committee announced June 13 that starting with the 2013-14 theatrical season, New York-based theatre companies will be eligible to receive the Regional Theatre Award.
Each year, the Tony Awards Administration Committee presents a Tony Award to a regional theatre on the recommendation of the American Theatre Critics Association. This past weekend, the 2013 Regional Theatre Award was presented to the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston, MA.
Other previous recipients of the prestigious award include the Shakespeare Theatre Company of Washington, D.C.; Lookingglass Theatre Company, Chicago, IL; Eugene O’Neill Theatre Company, Waterford, CT; Signature Theatre, Arlington, VA; Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, Chicago, IL; Alliance Theatre, Atlanta, GA; and Intiman Playhouse, Seattle, WA, among others.
“The Tony Awards support excellence in the theatre – from home town community theatre to Broadway. The Regional Theatre Award honors artistic achievement contributing to the growth of theatre nationally,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, and Heather Hitchens, executive director of the American Theatre Wing, in a joint statement. “New York has some of the most prestigious and creative theatre groups in the country and we are thrilled to include the New York theatre community in this category.”
The American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. For more information visit TonyAwards.com.
