Ardmore Native Benj Pasek Wins Tony For 'Dear Evan Hansen'


It also won best score for its young composers, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, already Oscar winners for the movie "La La Land".

Unlike past year, when "Hamilton" dominated the show and won 11 Tonys, the wealth was spread out this time.

The show's 23-year-old star Ben Platt was deemed Best Actor in a Musical.

"We are in a golden age of American playwrighting", said producer Andre Bishop as he accepted the award.

"To the ladies and gentlemen of the Oslo Accords who believed in democracy, who believed in seeing peace, seeing their enemies as humans, I give this up to them", said Rogers.

Verbal abuse also occurred on university property and on a cellphone that CU provided, according to the notice of claim. Salazar said there was no "bad intent" on the part of DiStefano, George or MacIntyre, but rather "mistakes" were made.


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".

It was clearly Evan Hansen's night.

Platt thanked his cast mates, crew and family, calling his parents his heroes. "I still have you on there", Biden said, and quipped, "I probably ruined your reputation". He added a plea to idiosyncratic types in keeping with the theme of his show. "To all young people watching at home, don't waste any time trying to be like anybody else", he said, "because the things that make you unusual are the things that make you powerful".

But if the night celebrated the outsider, it was the consummate showbiz insider who was its biggest star. Appearing as his "House of Cards" character Frank Underwood, he wisecracked that he'd better leave, "before Bette Midler thanks anyone else".

The play also garnered an award for Michael Aronov, who received the award for Best Featured Actor in a Play.

Midler has waited a long time for her award - and she was bound and determined to make the most of the moment.

"In all the pandemonium tonight I neglected to thank the brilliant ensemble of 'Hello Dolly, ' whom I adore".

Bette Midler's acceptance speech at Sunday's Tony Awards has gone viral after the acting legend refused to leave the stage until her four minute delivery was over.

The surprising speech did not match the upsets from the podium.
