And The Tony Award For Best Original Score Goes To …

… who else?

Justin Paul capped a monster year with Broadway’s most prestigious honor, for the mega-smash “Dear Evan Hansen.”

The duo later shared another Tony, as the show was named Best Musical.

Earlier this winter, the 2003 Staples High School grad — and songwriting partner Benj Pasek — earned Oscars and Golden Globes for “City of Stars,” their signature song from “La La Land.”

There are many more awards to come, for the hottest young songwriters on stage and screen.

But chances are the former Staples Players star will never forget his first ones.

    So, does this make Justin the first Staples alum to win both an Oscar and a Tony?

    Sooooooo exciting! Justin is on fire! Have August tickets to see Dear Evan Hansen with my son Alan. (Staples grad 2010) We were texting as the winners were announced. Congrats to Justin, his writing partner, his Westport mentors and his proud family!!!!
