The two-part spectacle captured six accolades, including best play, book, lighting, sound design, orchestrations and director for John Tiffany, who asked the crowd to sing Happy Birthday to his boyfriend.

He also praised "a cast of actors who never believed they would be able to portray their own races". "It is a spirit that says "no" to oppression, it is a spirit that says "no" to bigotry, "no" to shame, "no" to exclusion". He referenced a recent Supreme Court order upholding the right of a Colorado baker to refuse to bake a cake for the marriage of a same sex couple.

Legendary actress Jackson, 82, meanwhile is virtually sure to win her first Tony for her star turn in Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women".

The 2018 Tony Awards were filled with surprises, like Robert De Niro's audacious outburst, or Andrew Garfield's heartening cake-referencing acceptance speech. "Alright listen, it's late and I know you are all exhausted, so I am going to make this as long as I possibly can", he started with a smile.

Lea Salonga had her "very, very special" moment as she returned to the Tony Awards stage Sunday (Monday in Manila), this time as a performer along with her fellow cast members in the Broadway show "Once On This Island".

Squidward's show-stopper, lead by Gavin Lee with vocal and four-way tap-dancing prowess, impressed fans and featured pink, feathery, Muppet-handed Fosse girls. In the night's biggest surprise, Once on This Island, a fable of love and resilience, upset lavish productions of problematic faves My Fair Lady and Carousel to win the musical revival category. He's a graduate of New York University's Tish drama department. She said she was happy to be in a production that "celebrates diversity and individuality". She dedicated her award in part to the iconic Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum.
