2017 Tony Awards – List of Winners

2017 TONY AWARDS HITS THE GROUND ON JUNE 11 WITH ALL SORT OF MIND SUITING DRAMA, HOSTED BY KEVIN SPACEY AT THE RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL, UNITED STATES.

The Antoinette Perry Award for Excellence in Broadway Theatre, more commonly known as Tony Award, recognizes the excellence in live Broadway theatre. The awards are presented by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League at an annual ceremony in New York City. The awards are given for Broadway productions and performances, and an award is given for regional theatre.

The 71st (wow, that’s a long time coming) Annual Edition of Tony Award on 11 of June 2017 was repeatedly from every angle to a night filled with mind suiting trills. The ceremony hosted by Kevin Spacey with his crafted hosting abilities started the show with a prophetic musical montage. He first appeared as the titled character of one of the Tony’s nominated musical called “Dear Evan Hansen” and revolved through the other nominated shows as he sang.

With speculations the event was said to go well as expected regarding less political or rigging acts towards the awarded and not awarded contents, it is glaring to the audience that the contents awarded deserved the awards and no favoritism concerning the awarded contents which made the show more interesting to gain the attention of the audience. The event kick-started and went down with abundance of mind suiting experiences, also the musical: “Dear Evan Hansen” takes the center stage as it won the best musical.

Kevin Spacey jokingly goes presidential as he prevails to congratulate the evening winners, he poked fun at the speech of the Tony winner: Bette Midler who won the best actress in leading role in a musical called “Holly Dolly“, Spacey did this with the act and art of impersonating former US President Bill Clinton.
