The Tony Awards Administration Committee has announced this year’s recipients of 2013 Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre. These honors will be presented at the Tony Eve Cocktail Party, a private cocktail reception, on Saturday, June 8th.
The American Theatre Wing’s 2013 Tony Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, June 9th on CBS, and are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
The Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre were established in 1990 and are awarded annually to institutions, individuals and/or organizations that have demonstrated extraordinary achievement in theatre, but are not eligible in any of the established Tony Award categories. This year’s Tony Honors will be presented to:
The Lost Colony: The Lost Colony on Roanoke Island, in Manteo, North Carolina, is celebrating its 76th anniversary this year and is still going strong, The Lost Colony is a play by Pulitzer Prize winning Paul Green that has become an North Carolina performing arts institution. It was first performed on July 4, 1937, and remains today one of the last of the Federal Theatre Projects – an outdoor symphonic drama based on the story of the first English colonists that vanished from their settlement. The list of artists who spent summers at The Lost Colony is quite impressive, from Joe Layton to Andy Griffth to Lynn Redgrave and Steve Kazee.
We are truly ecstatic to announce this year’s recipients of the Tony Honors for Excellence in the Theatre,” said Heather Hitchens, Executive Director of the American Theatre Wing. “Career Transition for Dancers, Bill Craver, Peter Lawrence and The Lost Colony are all exceptional members of the theatre community – and more than that, they are part of the fabric of American theatre history.”
“The Tony Eve Cocktail Party is the kick-off celebration to the Tony Awards. It gives us a chance to pay homage to the best of Broadway – both those on-stage and off – as well as to the members of the community who help bring magic to the stage each and every night,” added Charlotte St Martin, Executive Director, The Broadway League.
Congratulations to this year’s honorees!

The Marowitz Hamlet: “Charles Marowitz, an acclaimed stage director, theatre critic, columnist, author, and playwright, has deconstructed Hamlet, breaking it into pieces and remixing it for the postmodern age. A thoroughly modern take on the plot of Hamlet which uses Shakespeare’s original words as the action plays out as seen through the prism of the central character’s mentally besieged consciousness.
This ‘collage’ as Marowitz terms it, unfolds in a steam of consciousness fashion, as characters appear and disappear from the stage at random as Hamlet conjures up his memories and imaginings of them. This new version severely shortens the play from the original four hours, but leaves the plot complete.”
