2014 Regional Theater Tony Award

The 2014 winner of the Regional Theater Tony Award is New York's own Signature Theatre.  This award is presented annually by the Tony Awards Administration Committee on the recommendation of the American Theater Critics Association and includes a grant of $25,000.  One of the objects of the award is to honor and promote incubators of new plays and productions.  So far, no organization has won twice, and this is the first year in which New York theater companies have been eligible.  Past winners include The Arena Stage in Washington, DC, The Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, The Long Wharf Theater in New Haven, Connecticut, and both the Goodman Theatre and the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago.  For a full list of past winners, click here.
