The 2017 Tony Award Winners

Last night saw The Tony Awards return to Radio City Music Hall, New York. It’s the biggest night in the Broadway calendar, held to honor and recognise the achievements of all who work to put on the shows we all love to go and watch.

This year Kevin Spacey was tasked with the honor of presenting the show, in previous years Neil Patrick Harris, Hugh Jackman and James Corden have all had a turn.
