O’Neill Theater Center Wins 2010 Regional Theatre Tony
By recommendation of the American Theatre Critics Association, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford Conn., now in its 46th year, will be awarded the 2010 Regional Theater Tony Award at the ceremony on June 13. The announcement was made May 3 by the American Theatre Wing, proprietor of the Tony Awards, and its partner, the Broadway League.
ATCA made its recommendation after a lengthy process of debate and balloting. The Regional Theatre Tony, which is limited to a theater outside New York City, is the only award based on a recommendation from a national, non-Broadway group. Presumably it is announced the day before the full slate of Tony nominations to give the winning theater a moment in the sun before the handicapping begins on the other Tony races.
