"Oslo", J.T. Rogers' play about the 1993 Oslo Accords, was named Best New Play at the Tony Awards.

Dear Evan Hansen, a story of love, loss and loneliness in the age of social media, was the big victor at last night's Tony Awards, picking up six awards including Best Musical.

So, when he won the Tony Award Sunday night for best actor in a musical, he urged young people not to give up the qualities that make them special.

Evan Hansen, the story of a high schooler wracked by confusion and loneliness, won as best new musical. Best Costume Design and Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Role also went to 'Hello, Dolly!' with the latter being won by Gavin Creel. His co-star in the show, Rachel Bay Jones, took home the top award for an Actress Featured in a Musical, and thanked her grandmother for selling her engagement ring in order to pay for her ticket to move to NY, despite her parents' doubts about the decision. The wins include Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, Best Leading Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical, and Best Orchestrations. "Sex and the City" alumna Cynthia Nixon, who clearly enjoys returning to the theater, won featured actress for "The Little Foxes".
