Tony Award Windfall to Boost 'The Band's Visit'

Tony Award Windfall to Boost 'The Band's Visit'

The pop stars, who have both recently fallen into Broadway's orbit, face their biggest audience yet and a careful political balancing act when they co-host the CBS telecast from the massive 6,000-seat Radio City Music Hall. Of its 11 nominations, "The Band's Visit" received 10 Tony awards - the most for any nominees of the night.

In the acting classification, Andrew Garfield's Angel's execution as prophet Prior Walter defeated veteran stage performing artist Mark Rylance, who got his fourth Tony designation for Farinelli and the King, while Garfield's co-star Nathan Lane got his third Tony win for the part as notorious genuine attorney Roy Cohn.

The Tonys recognise excellence in the theatrical performances shown at the 41 professional theatres with 500 or more seats in New York City's famous Broadway district.

Other winners included Carousel (best choreography and best featured actress in a musical - Lindsay Mendez).

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

It's also a great place for lunch and dinner. "Burgers are a quintessential menu item", says IHOB district manger Chris King. Darren Rebelez, the president of IHOP , explained the re-branding and put restaurant-goers at ease in a statement.

The play's cast and crew were there to pick up the awards, including Jamie Parker, who performed during the show as the grown-up Harry Potter, and Jack Thorne, who wrote the plays and is now adapting Philip Pullman's fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials for TV.

Laurie Metcalf won her second Tony, playing a younger version of Jackson's imperious character in Three Tall Women.

She then later encouraged many of her pupils to lead the nationwide movement for gun reform, including organizing the March For Our Lives demonstration and the charity single "Shine". But later, students in her drama department surprised the audience by appearing onstage to sing "Seasons of Love" from the musical "Rent".

Musician Bruce Springsteen will be given a special Tony Award for his concert residency at the Walter Kerr Theatre in NY. "And for those of us who are fortunate enough not to be suffering so deeply, let's make sure we answer them". She accepted in tears, recounting that when she moved to NY, she was told to change her last name to Matthews or she wouldn't work.

"It's such a great night", she said on the red carpet before the awards. This production transforms the reality of a tropical village devastated by a storm into a fantastical world alive with hope and the set includes a sand-filled beach, water, chickens and of course goats.
