Best Performances From The 2017 Tony Awards

Another memorable speech came from the night's other big musical star, Bette Midler, winning best actress (her first competitive Tony) for her lauded turn in "Hello, Dolly!".

"Dear Evan Hansen" star Ben Platt, 23, is the youngest sole victor for Best Actor (Musical); teens David Alvarez, Trent Kowalik, & Kiril Kulish shared in the award for "Billy Elliot" in 2009. Meanwhile, Ben Platt landed Best Performance By An Actor In A Leading Role while Rachel Bay Jones won Best Performance By An Actress In A Featured Role. The musical won four Tonys, including best musical revivla and Bette Midler taking home her first statuette as best actress in a musical. Andy Blankenbuehler took home yet another Tony for Best Choreography after the cast of Bandstand showed everyone exactly why he deserved it (and, of course, the award was announced during a commercial break).

After the Tony nominations in May, the smart money must have been on "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812", which had snapped up a leading 12 nods and looked strong in every category.
