The Band's Visit, the Broadway musical based on an Israeli film, swept the Tony Awards on Sunday night, taking home 10 prizes - including best musical - at the ceremony in NY. "We are all sacred, and we all belong", said Garfield.

Stachel, 26, is making his Broadway debut in "The Band's Visit", which stars Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") and the rising star Katrina Lenk. "F*ck Trump. It's no longer 'down with Trump, ' it's f*ck Trump".

Continued the actor, "I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died to protect that spirit, to protect that message. It's f*** Trump." Even more cheers erupted. Tina Fey is a superstar and she wrote a snappy, smart script for "Mean Girls", a musical based on her popular 2004 movie.

In her acceptance speech, telling Tony hopefuls to be true to themselves, Mendez said that when she had first moved to NY, she had been told she would need to change her name. At the Olivier Awards in London, where the show first premiered in 2016, Cursed Child scored nine out of 11 awards, including Best Play, Best Director (for Tiffany), and acting awards for Jamie Parker, Noma Dumezweni, and Anthony Boyle.

Second Best Triple Crown: Glenda Jackson was an actress and quit her day job to be a member of Parliament and then returned to Broadway in Edward Albee's Three Tall Women, for which she won the Tony Award.

Melissa Benoist introduces a performance by the cast of "Once on This Island" at the 72nd annual Tony Awards. Onstage guests were volunteers and staffers from three organisations that bring relief to areas impacted by natural disasters.

This charming show beat back stiff challenges from two revivals of American musical-theater classics: "Carousel" and "My Fair Lady".

Getting buzz from appearing on the telecast can dictate a show's future, both on Broadway and on tour. The Tonys didn't specifically address that, but did touch on gun violence, depression, politics and inclusion. Attendance was also up, coming in a 13.79 million, an increase of 3.9 percent at last season's 13.27 million.
