Article Excerpt:

by Nathaniel R

Last night the American theater community,and a boat load of adjacent stars (hello Tina Fey & Scarlett Johansson) celebrated Broadway triumphs at the 71st Annual Tony Awards.As expected the revival ofHello DollyandDear Evan Hansenowned the evening with 4 and 6 wins respectively.Composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are now halfway to the EGOT in less than half a year having picked up the Oscar for Best Original song forLa La Landback in February.But the peak of the evening was Bette Midler's very funny,quite enthusiastic and extremely long acceptance for Best Actress in a Musical (the biggest lock of the evening going in).It's the first time I can recall a performer ignoring the orchestra trying to play her off so insistently that they finally gave up.Her speech had a whole and even better second act as if the orchestra's interruption was just a particularly noisy intermission!

Kevin Spacey began his hosting job with a very strange and anxiety ridden number about competing with the memories of Tony hosts like Neil Patrick Harris,James Corden,and Hugh Jackman...

Whoopi Goldberg made a cameo with an "in the closet"joke,which played very strangely given that she was standing right next to a man who's famously been inside one his whole career.For his part,Spacey relied heavily on his rather amazing if also dated impersonation skills trotting out his super Johnny Carson and Bill Clinton mimicry for mini-skits within the show.He also leaned into his past and present personal career peaks withAmerican Beauty,Usual Suspects,andHouse of Cardsjokes and cast reunions.But,alas,not a host for the ages even though he seemed like a smart choice on paper.

Glenn Close presented Bette Midler her Best Actress prize

Backstage before commercial breaks Crazy Ex Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom brought the theater nerd funny and maybe she should host in the future!More after the jump including a complete list of winners...
