Congratulations to This Year's Tony Award Winners!

JUNE 12, 2017

Last night was Broadway's biggest night: the Tony Awards! Hosted by Kevin Spacey, the ceremony honored the best of Broadway's 2016 - 2017 season. With performances from all of the nominated musicals, and presentations from all of the nominated plays, last night was a brilliant celebration of a season that was busier than any in Broadway's history. Dear Evan Hansen and Hello, Dolly! took home the most trophies, including Best Musical and Best Revival of a Musical, respectively. They weren't the only winners, however, since the Tonys were also able to spread the love this year, sending trophies home with twelve different productions. 

Check out this video of Kevin Spacey's mammoth opening number, which parodied many of this year's nominated productions, and then read the full list of winners below. Tickets are available to all Tony Award-winning plays and musicals by visiting the show pages below.
