Ali Stroker, 31, captured a Best Featured Actress in a Musical Tony at Radio City Music Hall in NY for her role as Ado Annie in Rogers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" which is now playing at the Circle in the Square Theatre in Manhattan.

The Northern Irish drama The Ferryman has won the prestigious best play gong at the Tony theatre awards in the US.

De Shields tweeted shortly after winning the award, "I have paid my karma debt to my mother and father". "I'm here to tell you the American dream is alive", he said.

"So when you're exhausted of flat screen images of actors who aren't there, playing parts in shows made far away, and finished long ago... trade the remote for the near", he sang as the number started.

Santino Fontana won the Tony for Best Actorin a Musical for Tootsie and the show also scooped up the prize for Best Book of a Musical.

The awards cap a season that showed Broadway was in good shape.

As usual, the Williams drivers battled it out for last place with George Russell 19th and 1.351s behind Stroll. The gap between Mercedes and Ferrari in the constructors' standings, meanwhile, is a yawning 118 points.

"I have to be able to use my success as a way to inspire and affect change", he said.

"I want to thank my friends and family in Vermont, the birthplace of Hadestown", Chorney said in his speech, "and every band member who's ever played any of the dots that Todd and I wrote down for all the various Hadestown orchestras and bands, culminating with this attractive one on Broadway". "Demagoguery is the enemy of the people", the "Breaking Bad" star said, taking aim at President Donald Trump who frequently rails against unfavorable media as "the enemy of the people".

But his most successful bit may have been one the television audience never saw.

Porter also got people talking Sunday after he belted out an epic version of "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from the musical "Gypsy" during the commercial break at the Tonys. After first protesting that he "wasn't here to work tonight", Porter, a former Tony victor for "Kinky Boots", belted his way through "Everything's Coming Up Roses" from "Gypsy", earning the crowd's adoration.

Bryan Cranston, who won best leading actor in a play for his role in the "Network", adapted from the satirical 1976 film about a TV anchor, dedicated his award to "all the real journalists around the world". Corden included the entire casts-ensemble included-of all seven musicals nominated for Best Musical and Best Musical Revival.

Sexuality is at the center of best play revival nominees "Torch Song" and "Boys in the Band", but Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" or "The Waverly Gallery" may prevail. Last time Corden hosted in 2016, the show notched a 1.6 rating and 8.7 million viewers.
