Legendary actress Glenda Jackson won for Best Leading Actress in a Play for "Three Tall Women," and Nathan Lane walked off with Best Featured Actor in a Play honors for "Angels in America."
The AIDS-themed drama "Angels in America" also copped six awards, including best play revival, as well as Best Leading Actor in a Play honors for Andrew Garfield, who ended his acceptance speech by declaring, "Bake a cake for anyone who wants a cake" -- a reference to the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of a bakery owner who refused to design a cake for a gay couple.
The politically charged evening was highlighted by Robert De Niro, there to introduce Bruce Springsteen's performance of "My Hometown," delivering a profanity-laced stab at President Donald Trump.
“I just want to say one thing -- F--- Trump,” De Niro said. “It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f--- Trump,” he said, drawing loud cheers from the audience.
Several other artists also aired their views, including Best Featured Actress in a Musical winner for "Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel," Lindsay Mendez, who capped off her speech by saying she was "proud to be part of a community that celebrates diversity," adding, "To all you artists out there, just be true to yourself and the world will take note."
A touching moment occurred when it was announced that in a pre-awards ceremony, Melody Herzfeld, head of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School Drama Department received the Excellence in Theater Education Award. The school's drama students followed with a performance of "Seasons of Love," from the Tony-winning musical "Rent." The Parkland, Florida, high school was the site of a mass shooting in February that claimed the lives of 17 people and injured more than a dozen others.
Another rock legend, Billy Joel, was also on hand to present Springsteen with a special Tony for "Springsteen Live on Broadway."
The show was hosted by Josh Grobin and Sara Bareilles, who opened with a tongue-in-cheek song aimed at consoling the evening's losers. Later, they performed a number bemoaning the grueling Broadway schedule, sung to the tune of Sia's "Chandelier."
