With Tony for 'The Band's Visit,' Ari'el Stachel Embraces His Roots

Andrew Garfield attends the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall

The political sentiment earned De Niro a standing ovation from the crowd at Radio City Music Hall, while CBS scrambled to bleep the audio on the live telecast.

De Niro's comments brought the cheering crowd at Radio City Music Hall to its feet but were bleeped for US television audiences. "Boy, do we need that now".

"I'm going to say one thing, f- Trump", De Niro said.

"Look at the man who is in the White House right now". Its embrace of foreign cultures working together found a sweet spot with Tony voters.

Check those out below, along with the other musical performances from the 72nd annual Tony Awards.

"The Band's Visit", about Egyptian musicians stranded in a small Israeli town, swept the musical categories with 10 wins. Addressing his parents in the audience, Stachel, whose father was born in Israel, confessed that "for so many years of my life I pretended I was not a Middle Eastern person". He mentioned three dates: July 15, when the play's run ends; November 6, the date of the midterm elections ("21 weeks to save our democracy"); and June 10, "What kind of homosexual would I be if I didn't say it's June 10: Happy birthday, Judy Garland!" It is a spirit that says no to bigotry, to shame, and to exclusion.

"Let's bake a cake for everyone", Mr. Garfield said.

The smart bet was that Broadway would give her a Tony for her script.

"This is deeply appreciated, and thanks for making me feel so welcome on your block", he said in his acceptance speech. "The boss", said Joel, noting Springsteen's hundreds of sold-out performances, "is working hard".

David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter: The co-hosts were relaxed, natural and charmingly self-effacing throughout, starting with their tuneful opening number, which they began on dueling concert grand pianos and dedicated in advance to the losers - acknowledging how they've both been passed over for Grammy recognition themselves. They made fun of their particular musical niches (music you'd hear in a Starbucks, songs you'd put on a mixtape labeled "emotional"), and delightfully underplayed the visual gag of appearing in each other's most recent Broadway costumes. "So this is for the people who lose". This year's nominees are "Mean Girls", "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" and "Spongebob Squarepants" to name a few.
