Dear Evan Hansen” will win five Tony Awards on Sunday (June 11), including the coveted prize of Best Musical. Another new tuner, “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,” will take four while the revival of the 1964 Best Musical champ “Hello, Dolly!” will also claim five, including one for Bette Midler. (See the full list of predicted Tony Awards winners.)

On the play front, no show will win more than two awards. “Oslo” is tipped to take Best Play (and director) while its closest rival, “A Doll’s House Part 2,” will finally win leading lady Laurie Metcalf a Tony after three losses. And while Kevin Kline looks like a lock to pick up his third Tony, his showcase, “Present Laughter,” is likely to lose the revival race to “Jitney.”
