The Regional Theatre Tony Award will go to the Looking Glass Theatre in Chicago this year, according to an announcement on Tuesday.

Artistic director Andy White says the award took the company by surprise.

The Tony goes to a professional, regional theater company for artistic achievement and contributions to the growth of theater. The ceremony is on June 12 in New York.
