Tony Awards: 'Dear Evan Hansen' wins top Broadway honours

Tony Awards: 'Dear Evan Hansen' wins top Broadway honours

Spacey, who plays the sociopathic President Frank Underwood on the District-set Netflix series "House of Cards", is typically an intense actor on stage and screen, but Sunday night he took himself anything but seriously, integrating himself into numbers from the nominated musicals and ending the evening with a graceful tap dance.

Bette ended her speech by dedicating her award to all of the Dollys that have come before her, such as Carol Channing, who originated the role on Broadway in 1964, and Pearl Bailey. That provided one of the few examples of diversity in the winner's circle last night, all the more notable because it came just a year after "Hamilton" broke new ground at the Tony awards.

Already the hottest ticket on Broadway, productions of the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical have now opened or are about to open in Chicago, Los Angeles and London.

Her Best Leading Actress in a Musical acceptance speech made headlines on Sunday, June 11, for more reasons than one.

This is Ashley's first Tony win following previous nominations for "Rocky Horror Picture Show" and "Memphis". "Don't waste any time trying to be like anybody but yourself, because the things that make you odd are the things that make you powerful", Platt said during his acceptance speech. Her work in the revival of "Hello, Dolly" has led to millions of dollars in pre-sale tickets (and therefore also no surprise it also banked the Best Revival of a Musical award).

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who won Oscars as lyricists for La La Land, took home Tonys for Best Original Score for Dear Evan Hansen, while music supervisor Alex Lacamoire won the Tony for Best Orchestrations for the second year in a row.

The star-studded award show also featured celebs including host Kevin Spacey, Sally Field, Danny DeVito, Cynthia Nixon, and more!
