Who won what at the 2017 Tony Awards?

Kevin Spacey presided over the 71st annual Tony Awards, which saw Dear Evan Hansen win the trophy for best musical, whilst Oslo was named best play.

All early signs pointed to Dear Evan Hanson winning the big musical prize of the night as it swept earlier categories including book, original score and orchestration. Star Ben Platt won for lead actor in a musical, while Rachel Bay Jones won for featured actress in a play.
