Harry Potter and the Cursed Child picked up six awards during the night including Best Play.

Actors Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane both notably took home wins for their roles in Angels in America.

Despite receiving 12 nominations, SpongeBob Squarepants: The Musical only took home one prize, while Mean Girls didn't take home any awards.

Bruce Springsteen received a special Tony Award for his hit show Springsteen on Broadway.

The casts of Mean Girls and Summer: The Donna Summer Musical delivered memorable performances alongside students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas who sang a survival anthem from Rent.
