Dear Evan Hansen, the original Broadway musical that tells the story of an “invisible” high school outsider whose desperate longing for acceptance leads him to an unimaginable lie, was the most-awarded production of the 71st Annual Tony Awards, which were presented June 11 at Radio City Music Hall.

Nominated for nine awards, Dear Evan Hansen won in six categories, including Best Musical. Ben Platt took home the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his emotionally raw performance in the show’s title role, while Rachel Bay Jones won for Best Performance by an Actress in Featured Role a Musical for her performance as his mother Heidi. Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul also took home their first Tony Award for Best Original Score. Alex Lacamoire won his third Tony for Best Orchestrations, having previously won for Hamilton and In the Heights.

The celebrated Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly! starring Bette Midler took home four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role a Musical for Midler. It was also awarded Best Performance by an Actor in Featured Role a Musical for Gavin Creel, as well as Best Costume Design of a Musical for Santo Loquasto.

Best Play was awarded to Oslo, the new work by J.T. Rogers, who made his Broadway debut with the political drama about high-level meetings between the State of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, which culminated in the signing of the historic 1993 Oslo Accords. Michael Aronov’s performance as Israeli diplomat Uri Savir earned him the Tony for Best Performance by an Actor in Featured Role a Play.

Additional honors went to Laurie Metcalf, who won her first Tony Award for her performance as Nora in Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House, Part 2, and Kevin Kline, who won his third Tony Award for Present Laughter. August Wilson’s Jitney—the last of his plays to receive its Broadway debut—won for Best Revival of a Play.
