Shows about teen suicide, Middle East peace negotiations, labor strife and the September 11 attacks will square off on Sunday at the annual Tony Awards honoring the best of Broadway theater.

Once the music stopped, Midler continued her speech.

Her speech provided host Kevin Spacey - who sang, did a little soft-shoe, trotted out his impressions, and was generally game for anything - with his best line of the night.

And when that star is Bette Midler, just assume that goes double for her.

(In a new touch, all four playwrights personally introduced their work).

Michael Aronov, who plays an Israeli diplomat in the play, also won a Tony for best featured actor.

The Rockettes had their own number and got to dance with the cast of "Come From Away", a feel-good Canadian musical set against the horror of 9/11.

It was clearly Evan Hansen's night.


"Dear Evan Hansen", a daringly unflinching exploration of loss, lies and loneliness in a high school community, won the 2017 Tony Award for the best musical.

The singer, who shimmered in a silver sequined gown, called the show "one of the greatest professional experiences of my entire life" and gave thanks to make-up artist for making her "look 30 years younger".

Kevin Spacey, from left, Michael Kelly and Robin Wright appear as their characters from "House of Cards" as they present Lin-Manuel Miranda with the envelope for best musical at the 71st annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 11, 2017, in NY. But the lavish, unconventional spectacle based on a snippet of "War and Peace" which stars Josh Groban may see its best shot at a major prize for directing, awards watchers say.

"There are people who eat the Earth and all the people on it and there are all the people who just stand around and watch them do it", she said.

The Late Show host presented the award for Best Revival and quickly went on to talk about the "revival down in Washington, D.C".

It won six awards Sunday evening, including best musical and best actor for Platt. Paul won the Oscar this year for "La La Land".

The veteran actor was joined on stage by Stephen Colbert, who sported a groundhog head and advised him to read off a teleprompter and not mess things up, while past host Whoopi Goldberg also made an appearance, and Billy Crystal sent a video message.

The "American Beauty" actor even poked fun at rumours about his sexuality as he dressed as Norma Desmond from "Sunset Boulevard" to sing "As If We Never Said Goodbye".
