Bette Midler Steals Tonys Show With Epic 'Shut That Crap Off' Speech

13 June 2017

And Spacy came out in his House of Cards personna as President Francis Underwood, with his TV wife Robin Wright at his side, to give it to him.

Unlike past year, when "Hamilton" dominated the show and won 11 Tonys, the wealth was spread out this time. 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.

As if her earlier speeches weren't enough, Midler also took to Twitter to thank her Hello, Dolly! cast.

After the Tony nominations in May, the smart money must have been on "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812", which had snapped up a leading 12 nods and looked strong in every category.

It was clearly Evan Hansen's night.

Laurie Metcalf won her first Tony, winning best actress honors in "A Doll's House, Part 2".

"Indecent" director Rebecca Taichman won for play directing, and veteran actor James Earl Jones was presented with a lifetime achievement award. Like many other winners, he made a pitch for the National Endowment for the Arts, which is facing funding cuts under the Trump administration, saying without it "half the people in this room wouldn't be here".

Cynthia Nixon, who won best featured actress for Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes, said the groundbreaking 1939 play about lesbian relationships was "eerily prescient", particularly at "this specific moment in history".

"My love, my gratitude and my undying respect go out to all the people in 2017 who are refusing to just stand and watch them do it."

Other winners included August Wilson's "Jitney," which drove away with the Tony for best play revival. It's been a good season for the duo, who also won an Oscar for their hit song "City of Stars" in the movie La La Land.

"I want to thank everybody", Kline said, adding "we don't do this alone".

Some of his most successful bits, judging by audience reaction, were his much-lauded impressions. The official Tonys after-party brought attendees to the nearby Plaza Hotel, where Josh Groban was spotted chatting with Keegan-Michael Key, Vice President Biden snapped photos with guests, and another political figure - Hamilton alum Christopher Jackson - chatted with a young fan of the musical.

"This D.C. production is supposed to have a four-year run, but reviews have not been kind", Colbert said.

"Now, between you and me, you might be a better singer. And then to be representing my show and performing tonight — I just had the best time".
