After a night filled with music, laughter, and a few glorious costume changes from this year’s host, Kevin Spacey, the results are in for the 71st Annual Tony Awards! After last year’s near clean sweep by Broadway sensation Hamilton, which earned a record-breaking 16 nominations, it was oddly refreshing to see a much more diverse pool of nominees and winners at this year’s awards! Though there could only be one winner in each category, the 2017 Tony Awards was a testament to an incredible Broadway season. This year’s winners are as follows:
