Rachelle Ann Go and the rest of the cast of "Hamilton" graced this year's Olivier Awards with a special performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday.

The historical hip-hop musical swept the board winning seven awards, including best new musical.

Meanwhile, actor Bryan Cranston won the best actor awards for his role in "Network".

Speaking about the play, he said: "I think it's really appropriate, not just for the time it was written, but for our time right now -- that is very challenging times both in Britain, in the United States, we are talking about maligning media and fake news and post-truth environment. I think "Network" is very very prescient."

Sam Mendes won best director for "The Ferryman".

Another musical "Girl from the North Country" was also honored with Shirley Henderson winning best actress in a musical.

Bertie Carvel won best supporting actor for his role in "Ink".

The Olivier Awards are considered Britain's most prestigious theatre honors. -- Reuters
