"Dear Evan Hansen" Came Out On Top At The Tonys

Gavin Creel won best featured actor in a musical for "Hello, Dolly!" and "August Wilson's Jitney" won best revival of a play. Except, according to Colbert, that production hasn't been received as kindly as the three shows nominated for Best Revival of a Musical.

"Indecent" director Rebecca Taichman won for play directing, and veteran actor James Earl Jones was presented with a lifetime achievement award.

He added that "the directing field was so strong this year that I didn't write a speech".

"It's such a family and community that put this show together". Thanks especially to the great Laura Linney for- Linney for thing outside the box and for thinking of me when she did it. "This is sacred ground to us and nothing compares to it", Paul said backstage in the press room when asked if winning a Tony or winning the Oscar (for writing the lyrics to La La Land this year) was better.

Onstage, Ashley thanked "Come From Away" writers Irene Sankoff and David Hein for creating the fact-based story of how the tiny town of Gander, Newfoundland, took in thousands of stranded travelers after the 2001 terror attacks.

On Sunday, it was the Tonys' turn to show they still had an ax to grind against a president who once planned to gut the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Dear Evan Hansen" came into the night as the second-leading Tony nominee.

"Dear Evan Hansen", starring 23-year-old Ben Platt in a breakout - and knockout - performance, took six awards Sunday evening at Radio City Music Hall, including best musical and best actor for Platt.


The cast performed the show-stopping song "Waving Through a Window" from the musical earlier in the CBS telecast, which was hosted by Kevin Spacey.

Michael Aronov was a surprise victor in the featured actor category for his kinetic performance as an Israeli negotiator in "Oslo", a behind-the-scenes look at the 1993 Middle East peace accords.

Last night, Bette Midler won a Tony for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her role in the revival of Hello, Dolly! .

Midler's speech was probably one of the longest of the night ― the orchestra attempted to play her off, but she continued speaking, outlasting the musical crescendo.

"Hello, Dolly!" won four Tonys altogether.

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

"I'm so privileged. I'm so honored", she said as she accepted her award. "I'm in a state of total shock". "To feel like something that I've been a part of has even a fraction of that effect on people is fantastic because I know theater for me, especially when I was younger, felt like a haven and a refuge", Levenson said.
