Shakespeare Theatre to Take Home the Regional Tony Award
A resounding "congrats" from all of us here at PQ Insider to the Shakespeare Theatre Company. It was announced today that they will be awarded the 2012 Regional Theatre Tony Award in New York on June 10th.
The Regional Theatre Tony Award honors only one non-profit, professional regional theatre in the entire country per year - one that displays a continuous level of artistic achievement contributing to the growth of theatre nationally. We are very lucky to have Shakespeare Theatre Company just around the corner.
"I am so honored to have the work of the Shakespeare Theatre Company recognized in this way," STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn said in a statement. "This is a very touching tribute to have the work of all of the artists and staff who have been a part of our 25-year history acknowledged."
Next time someone tries to pull the old "New York is sooooo much better" routine with you, you can tell them you're afforded the opportunity to see Tony winners too. Check out their upcoming performances.
