"'Oslo" takes Tony Award for best new play

Freda Brock | 13 June, 2017, 04:26

Dear Evan Hansen was named Best Musical at the Tony Awards ceremony in New York Sunday night. "And it's been a great year for revivals in general, especially that one they revived down in Washington, D.C. It started Off-Broadway in the '80s, way Off-Broadway, over on Fifth Avenue".

Once the music stopped, Midler continued her speech.

Rachel Bay Jones won her first Tony for her work in the musical, capping a long career onstage with plenty of zigs and zags. Dressed as Glenn Close, who stars in that revival, Spacey sang, "I'm coming out..." and then added, "Of makeup..."

Kline made a point of thanking the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities, two organizations whose federal funding is threatened under President Donald Trump's administration. The show won six Tonys, including for book, score, orchestration and featured actress. Cynthia Nixon, accepting the featured actress in a play prize for her repertory turn in "Little Foxes", cited playwright Lillian Hellman's line about people who stand back during injustice.

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".

"You taught me you have to be a decent human being to be a decent artist", Platt said, addressing his father. Gavin Creel won his first Tony for featured actor in a musical in "Hello, Dolly!".

Broadway enjoyed a record-breaking season thanks to last year's Tony victor, pop culture juggernaut "Hamilton", and musicals like "Hello, Dolly!" and "Come From Away", which won a Tony for director Christopher Ashley. Rebecca Taichman won best directing play honors for "Indecent".
