Bette Midler orders Tony Awards orchestra to stop playing during speech

In addition to Bette's win, the musical also nabbed the Tonys for Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical to Gavin Creel, and Best Costume Design of a Musical to Santo Loquasto.

Dear Evan Hansen, a story of love, loss and loneliness in the age of social media, was the big victor at last night's Tony Awards, picking up six awards including Best Musical.

The cast of "Come From Away" performs at the 71st annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 11, 2017, in NY. Oslo, a crackling drama about the little-known backstory behind the 1993 Middle East peace talks, won the hard-fought competition for the best new play, reported New York Times.

The night belonged to Dear Evan Hansen, which has made stars not only of Platt, who was previously best known for appearing in the Pitch Perfect films (2012 and 2015), but also of its young songwriters, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. She and Laura Linney traded off playing the two leading characters and Nixon graciously thanked Linney-and then quoted Hellman about the people who "eat the earth and all the people on it" and others who stand and watch.

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.

Before announcing the nominees, the "Late Show" host compared the Trump administration to an ailing Broadway musical.

Midler ended her speech by giving her thanks to the Broadway stars across history-including original Hello Dolly performers Carole Channing and Pearl Bailey.

But the most surprising attendees of the evening hands down has to go to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer.

Broadway has found a new fierce queen in Bette Midler.

At the time, Mr Trump tweeted: "The only American who has met with the North Korean man child is Dennis Rodman ". Since then, he visited the North on several occasions for what could be seen as "basketball diplomacy".

The play has won rave reviews and a Hollywood movie adaptation is also in the works, planned by Marc Platt, producer of "La La Land", which won six Oscars at this year's Academy Awards. He won his first best orchestration award for "In the Heights" in 2008. It was worthy of the standing ovation that it received from his peers that were gathered at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

House Of Cards actor, Kevin Spacey, did an exceptional job at making the crowd laugh, bringing down the house as host with a few impersonations, including one of Bill Clinton aimed at wife Hillary. In an interview, he said he had enjoyed both Spacey and the ceremony, even though he hadn't had time to see this year's nominated shows yet.
