The 71st Annual Tony Awards went down Sunday night (June 11) on CBS, with Dear Evan Hansen emerging as the biggest winner of the night -- taking home six trophies, including best musical. Hello Dolly also won four awards, including best revival of a musical, while Oslo also won two, including best play.Kevin Kline accepts the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for "Present Laughter" onstage during the 2017 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 11, 2017 in New York City.

 

2017 tony awards nominations

 

The stars shone for the composer-lyricists and book writer Steven Levenson, as “Dear Evan Hansen” nabbed the Tony Awards’ top honor of best musical at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday night. The trio’s show, an emo-pop piece about an awkward teenager who becomes an accidental hero, won over voters with a story that’s both a timeless tale of teenage anxiety and an of-the-moment examination of social media.

 

 

Ben Platt, who plays the title character — and became Broadway’s biggest sensation this season— won the Tony for best actor in a musical. The show won six Tonys, including for book, score, orchestration and featured actress. “At its core our musical is about wanting to belong, said producer Stacey Mindich in accepting the prize. “You have been seen and heard around the world,” she said, addressing fans who have responded to the production. 

 

 

If last year was a coronation for the blockbuster musical “Hamilton,” this year’s Tonys was more even-handed with notable wins for a number of shows, including the best play, “Oslo.”
