'The Band's Visit' bucks trend by sweeping Tony Awards

Here's the full list of Tony winners (including the surprising Best Revival of a Musical Tony To Once On This Island) and more coverage from WNYC.

Glenda won an Oscar in 1971 for Women in Love and she won two Emmys in 1972 for Elizabeth R. When he returns to his wealthy family on the other side of the island, four gods: Mother of the Earth Asaka (Alex Newell), God of Water Agwé (Quentin Earl Darrington), Goddess of Love Erzulie (Lea Salonga) and Demon of Death Papa Ge (Tamyra Gray), guide Ti Mourne through a test of her love against prejudice and hate.

It was a reminder that co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles - talented and likable if not terribly thrilling - face their biggest test yet when they co-host the CBS telecast from the massive 6,000-seat Radio City Music Hall.

As for the Audra connection, Mendez has tried to keep the six-time Tony victor out of mind while crafting her own take on the role.

Andrew Garfield won the first prize of the night for his role in Angels in America and dedicated the prize to the LGBTQ community: "We are all sacred and we all belong". 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. Tina Fey is a superstar and she wrote a snappy, smart script for "Mean Girls", a musical based on her popular 2004 movie.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play: Nathan Lane, "Angels in America". " ... So we have to keep working until the change that we want to see happens".

The 2007 film, The Band's Visit, was critically acclaimed when it was released in Israel, receiving 8 Ophir Awards, including best film, best director, best lead actor for Gabbai and best lead actress for the late Ronit Elkabetz. One of three statues were picked up by the cast on Sunday, which came roughly 25 years after the original production of Angels in America, which swept the 1993 Tony Awards, reported Variety.

"Look at the man who is in the White House right now".

The beloved new Broadway production of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's Once On This Island has been named the 2018 Tony victor for Best Revival of a Musical! Broadway producers will be thankful this year that the telecast won't have to compete with any NBA Finals or Stanley Cup playoff games.

Airing on Sunday, the awards show will recognize the best of Broadway's 2017-18 season.

The expletive, known as the F-bomb, was bleeped by the CBS network for millions of television watchers at home, a CBS spokeswoman said. Attendance was also up, coming in a 13.79 million, an increase of 3.9 percent at last season's 13.27 million.
