The wins include Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Leading Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and Best Orchestrations.

When it comes to Tony Award openings, Kevin Spacey had a pretty good number.

Bette Midler, a victor for Hello, Dolly!

The show also lost out on the best lighting design of a musical award to Bradley King of "Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812".

Whether you're a Broadway aficionado or not, you may appreciate how Bette Midler handled herself on stage at last night's (June 11) 2017 Tony Awards, during her acceptance speech for Best Lead Actress in a Musical, based on her role in Hello, Dolly.

Ashley said the musical, which had been nominated for seven Tony Awards, is "gaining traction" on Broadway.

The glitzy revival of "Hello, Dolly!" starring the 71-year-old Midler and the breakout "Dear Evan Hansen", about wanting to belong and the might of social media, spotlighted different sides to New York's famed district, which last season grossed a record $1.45 billion in earnings. Not only was it extremely longer than most award show speeches, but she also said some of the most hilarious one-liners while accepting her first-ever Tony win for acting.


Dressed as her husband Bill, Spacey referenced the plot of Dear Evan Hansen, which sees the teenager write fake emails to integrate himself into the family of a classmate who dies by suicide.

Michael Aronov, a fellow New World graduate, won the Tony Award for best featured actor in a play for his portrayal of a tough, cocky negotiator in "Oslo", which won for best new play.

After winning a Tony award Sunday night, Hawaii's own Bette Midler took the chance to give the teachers who introduced her to theater an emotional "thank you".

Rachel Bay Jones accepts the award for best performance by an actress in a featured role in a musical for "Dear Evan Hansen" at the 71st annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 11, 2017, in NY.

Cynthia Nixon won Best Featured Actress In A Play for her work in a revival of The Little Foxes. Dressed as Glenn Close, who stars in that revival, Spacey sang, "I'm coming out." and then added, "Of makeup".

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.
