Broadway's biggest stars are used to taking the stage, but a lucky few got to step into a different spotlight to accept big wins at the 71st Tony Awards. Hosted by Kevin Spacey, the glitzy award show took place at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.
The star-studded evening included appearances by Stephen Colbert, Whoopie Goldberg and Billy Crystal and performances by the Radio City Rockettes and the casts of several Broadway shows. Bette Midler, one of the winners at the 2017 Tony Awards, amused the audience by ordering the orchestra to "shut that crap off," when they tried to cut her acceptance speech off prematurely.
Not surprisingly, the evening was filled with political references, which culminated with Spacey and his "House of Cards" co-stars Robin Wright and Michael Kelly appearing on-stage as their characters in the hit show. Take a look at the winners of this year's Tony Awards and their net worths.
Best Play — “Oslo”
Written by J.T. Rogers, "Oslo" is a dark comedy that chronicles secret peace talks between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization in Norway in 1993.
