Ben Platt, Bette Midler, Scarlett Johansson To Perform At 2017 Tony Awards

Ben Platt, Bette Midler, and Scarlett Johansson will be among the performers and presenters at the 2017 Tony Awards, which will be presented on Sunday, June 11.

Platt is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his star turn in “Dear Evan Hansen,” and Midler is up for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical for her glamorous take on the title character of “Hello, Dolly!”

Johansson won the 2010 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play for her appearance in a revival of Arthur Miller’s “A View From the Bridge.”

Also on stage at the Kevin Spacey-hosted ceremony will be Rachel Bloom of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Nick Kroll of the now-closed Broadway two-hander “Oh, Hello,” and Whoopi Goldberg, among others.
