2013 Regional Tony Award
The Tony Awards Administration Committee presented the 2013 Regional Theatre Tony Award to the Huntington Theatre Company at the 66th Annual Tony Award Ceremony on Sunday, June 9, 2013. One of the most prestigious and coveted honors in the entertainment industry, the Regional Theatre Tony Award is presented each year to honor a nonprofit professional regional theatre company in the United States that has displayed a continuous level of artistic achievement contributing to the growth of theatre nationally. It is awarded by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing based upon a recommendation by the American Theatre Critics Association.
Michael Maso and Peter DuBois accept the Regional Theatre Award at the 2013 Tony Awards ceremony.
From Boston Herald, June 11, 2013: "The home town team scored several huge victories Sunday night — the kind that were they in the sports arena would merit a Duck Boat parade or at the very least a rally on City Hall Plaza. But this town is not nearly as appreciative as it should be of the artistic triumphs that make this community world class. . . . "
From The Boston Globe, June 10, 2013: "Local theater is on a creative upswing, and it’s gratifying to see the Tony Awards take note. . . . "
From The Boston Globe, June 8, 2013: "On Sunday night, the Huntington Theatre Company will step into the spotlight to collect the 2013 Tony Award for regional theater. Huntington artistic director Peter DuBois and managing director Michael Maso sat down recently at the Boston Center for the Arts’ Calderwood Pavilion, a space built and operated by the Huntington and opened in 2004, to talk about what it takes to maintain a strong regional theater. . . . "
From BU Today, June 7, 2013: "Two lucky men—both legends in the Boston theater community—have the satisfaction of knowing they’ve already won a Tony. Peter DuBois, artistic director of the Huntington Theatre Company and Michael Maso, Huntington managing director and a College of Fine Arts School of Theatre associate professor, will accept the 2013 Regional Theatre Tony Award on behalf of the Huntington, which recently completed its 31st season. . . . "
