2012 Regional Theatre Tony Award
The Shakespeare Theatre Company received the 2012 Regional Theatre Tony Award®!
We would like to thank YOU for helping make this honor possible during our 25th Anniversary Season.
"I am so honored to have the work of the Shakespeare Theatre Company recognized in this way," STC Artistic Director Michael Kahn says. "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. We are so thankful to our Board of Trustees, patrons and supporters who have helped shape us into the artistic institution that we have become."
When Michael accepted the 2012 Tony Award for Best Regional Theatre, he acknowledged the many company members, artisans, supporters and staff who share in the success of the Shakespeare Theatre Company. While we have all played our parts these 25 years, I think we each know that the longevity, the 78 Helen Hayes Awards, the Free For All, the innovative education programs, the artistry on stage, the two theatres, the transformation of the Penn Quarter – none of these milestones would have been possible without the extraordinary direction of Michael Kahn.
Please help me recognize Michael for his 25 years at the theatre and celebrate the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s once in a lifetime honor of receiving the 2012 Regional Theatre Tony Award by signing the virtual congratulations card below.
