MILLBURN - The Paper Mill Playhouse will receive a Tony Award for outstanding regional theater.

Managing Director Todd Schmidt says that the theater received a phone call Monday with the official word about the award.

The 78-year-old Millburn playhouse has seen the beginnings of a wide variety of Hollywood talent. Academy Award-winner and former New Jersey resident Anne Hathaway got her start there.

Many other acting veterans have performed at Paper Mill to recharge their careers.

The Tony Award for outstanding regional theater is given to just one theater each year. Paper Mill is the third New Jersey theater to receive it.

The Paper Mill Playhouse will accept the Tony Award June 12.
