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.

Add a rare live television performance by Bruce Springsteen and it's clear that Broadway and the Tonys are reaching beyond their traditional demographic. "And for those of us who are fortunate enough not to be suffering so deeply, let's make sure we answer them".

This one's for the losers! While "The Band's Visit" is based on a film, it came to the stage far less known - and presold - than the other contenders, "Mean Girls", "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical" and "Frozen".

"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two" roped in Best Play while " The Band's Visit" was recognised as the Best Musical at the 72nd Tony Awards that mixed Broadway razzle-dazzle with politically-charged calls to arms.

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.

For most of the previous awards season, shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes have acknowledged the issue of sexual misconduct and abuse of power.
