Said Best Featured Actress in a Musical winner Renee Elise Goldsberry about playing Angelica Schuyler in “Hamilton,” “I am so grateful that Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tommy Kail and the producers saw in me what I see in myself and what I aspire to be, which is a woman who is learning every day what it means to be powerful and influential in spite of whatever barriers exist.”

Best Actor in a Play champ Frank Langella (“The Father”) talked more about playing a man with dementia: “The most powerful thing I’ve discovered in this is that the caregiver is very often much more in pain because they’re so used to the person knowing who they are, and one day the person looks at them blankly and doesn’t remember years of eating together, lovemaking, having children, going on vacation. They’re just a stranger.”
