Dear Evan Hansen', a daringly unflinching exploration of loss, lies and loneliness in a high school community, won the 2017 Tony Award for the best musical.

Kevin Spacey sang, danced and mimicked Bill Clinton at a Tony Awards ceremony where the policies of President Trump's administration were taken to task.

About 45 minutes into the show, a #Resistance mention was made.

In drama, top acting honors went to Kevin Kline for "Present Laughter" - his third Tony - and to Laurie Metcalf - her first - for "A Doll's House, Part 2".

Cynthia Nixon won her second Tony, featured actress in a play, for Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes". She said there are those who "eat the earth and eat all the people on it".

The orchestra tried to play Midler off the stage to no avail. Thanks especially to the great Laura Linney for- Linney for thing outside the box and for thinking of me when she did it.

The 23-year-old actor saved a special message for young people watching, which he delivered at the end of his acceptance speech. The hit show centers on a socially anxious teenager played by Ben Platt - who also won a Tony - and Mindich and Levenson talked at length about how his character reflects the agony of being online at any age. But she said the experience had been "life-affirming and life-changing", telling reporters between tears, "It's more than I deserve". And as expected, Manhattan Theater Club's revival of August Wilson's "Jitney" won the Tony for revival of a play, even though it technically was the first Broadway production of the 1982 work. It's supposed to have a four-year run. Know, we don't know, best of luck to everyone involved.

Anna Kendrick, David Oyelowo, James Earl Jones, Tommy Tune, Sutton Foster, Scott Bakula and Mark Hamill were some of the stars on hand, some skipping makeup or designer clothes. He came to see the show and really spent so much time with the cast.

The warning comes as talks get underway in Stormont, between the DUP and Sinn Féin , to try and restore power-sharing there. The dispute has prompted renewed calls for a chairman from outside the United Kingdom and Ireland to be appointed.

Spacey also poked fun at USA presidential candidate Hilary Clinton during the ceremony.

Spacey, who won a Tony in 1991 for Neil Simon's "Lost in Yonkers", but is primarily known now as a dramatic actor (or melodramatic, in the case of "House of Cards"), seemed determined to show that, in fact, he can do it all.

He began by saying, "We've had some surprising winners".

He joked in song: "I'm coming out - wait, no no no no". But I'm gonna get in trouble when I get home. His Clinton joked about food and his wife's email problems, while his fictional one — accompanied by fictional wife Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) — admitted he wanted to leave before Midler started to thank anyone else.
