Tony Awards

Congratulations to all the Tony Award winners and nominees. 

Here's a brief roundup of some of the winners.

Best Musical went to Dear Evan Hansen. Will it come to Seattle soon? There will be a national tour in 2018 but details are scant. The show won several Tony Awards, including ones for Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and for Ben Platt, who won the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical. 

Best Play went to J.T. Rogers' Oslo, a play about the 1990s Oslo Peace Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization. 

Best Revival of a Musical went to Hello, Dolly!. Bette Midler also won for her performance in the title role. 

Best Revival of a Play was for August Wilson's Jitney.

Come From Away, that had a start at Seattle Repertory Theatre before heading to Broadway, won a Tony for Best Direction of a Musical (Christopher Ashley). 

Congratulations again to all those involved!
