A new Tony Award will be given annually to a theater teacher who has made a “monumental impact” on the lives of students, executives who oversee the Tonys and officials at Carnegie Mellon University announced on Sunday. The honor is intended to reflect the appreciation that many Tony winners — actors, writers, directors — have expressed for drama teachers who guided or inspired them. The award is the first new Tony since 2009.
