Kevin Spacey Added a New Celebrity Impression to His Arsenal: Fred Astaire

Bette Midler praised the Broadway community after she won the Best Actress in a Musical Tony Award Sunday night for her performance in the revival of 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.

The stars of the stage turned out in force at theatre's biggest night of the year as the 71-year-old crowned "Best Actress" for her turn in the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!

A who's who of the world's best actors have taken aim at Donald Trump during a series of politically charged speeches at the Tony Awards, which celebrate the best Broadway productions.

Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 entered the night with 12 nominations, the most of any other show. Musicals "Dear Evan Hansen" and "Hello, Dolly!' took home six and four awards respectively - not quite the takeover as 'Hamilton" but impressive nonetheless. Best Direction Of A Musical was scooped by Christopher Ashley for "Come From Away".

Tony victor Ben Platt performs with the cast of "Dear Evan Hansen" during the Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall. But the problem was also Kevin Spacey.

She's a Tony Award-winner.

A note to future awards shows that want to play Bette Midler off during an acceptance speech: don't try it.

The ceremony, at Radio City Music Hall, was hosted by Kevin Spacey, who generally stayed away from politics, choosing instead to make fun of his own status as a late-in-the-game choice as host.

In a bid to get her off the stage, the show's orchestra started playing but that didn't stop her as she continued giving her shout outs before telling the musicians to 'shut that crap off, ' making the auditorium laugh out loud. See below for the five best performances from the 2017 Tony Awards.

"Oslo", J.T. Rogers' play about the 1993 Oslo Accords, was named Best New Play at the Tony Awards. And Spacy came out in his House of Cards personna as President Francis Underwood, with his TV wife Robin Wright at his side, to give it to him.

At first I thought the problem with the opening number was that Neal Patrick Harris wasn't doing it-in case you've forgotten how good he is, scroll down-or that I didn't know this year's musicals very well. "We hoped to write a show where people who were looking for a home would find one".
