A starry revival of Tony Kushner's 7½-hour "Angels in America", which transferred to Broadway from the National Theater in London, was named the best play revival for an acclaimed production that cemented the play's claim as the best American drama of the late 20th century. "And so I concealed and I missed so many special events with them". Director David Cromer related that musical's themes to the mental health crisis evidenced by recent high-profile suicides, urging those overwhelmed by loneliness and disconnection to reach out for help. The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead before he raised his arms - twice - and earned a sustained standing ovation.

Actor Robert De Niro speaks before introducing Bruce Springsteen's performance.

"(Let's) just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked", he said, to rousing applause.

"I'm going to say one thing, F- Trump", De Niro said while pumping his fists in the air.

Nathan Lane took home his third Tony award for Angels In America as closeted conservative lawyer Roy Cohn, who died of AIDS. Sasson Gabay, who played the role of Tewfiq in the 2007 film, will reprise his performance in the musical adaptation on Broadway.

The Hacksaw Ridge star, 34, dedicated the win to the LGBTQ community and said the play was a rejection of bigotry, shame and oppression.

There will also be additional performances from the casts of the Best Revival of a Musical category: "Carousel", "My Fair Lady", "Once on This Island" and "Summer: The Donna Summer Musical". Shalhoub thanked his immigrant father, and said he hopes "we, their descendants, never lose sight of what they taught us".

The Tony Awards also addressed issues of authenticity and equity in casting.

Laurie Metcalf won her second Tony, playing a younger version of Jackson's imperious character in Three Tall Women. Spacey's ceremony last year drew 6 million viewers, which represented a drop of approximately 31 percent in total viewers from the previous year. Overall, the 2017-18 Broadway season is the highest-grossing in history, according to the Broadway League.
