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

The revival of Carousel won two awards - choreography and for Lindsay Mendez, who won best featured actress in a musical. Tina Fey is a superstar and she wrote a snappy, smart script for "Mean Girls", a musical based on her popular 2004 movie. "He is us." But Garfield understands that the character and his experiences are "more specially for the LGBTQ community, and everything that he represents is for the LGBTQ community".

That status was confirmed by the time Katrina Lenk gave an unforgettable performance of "Omar Sharif", intimately captured by director Glenn Weiss to convey the cinematic vibe of The Band's Visit. Nathan Lane, a victor for Best Featured Actor in a Play for his performance as Roy Cohn in Angels in America, follows in the footsteps of original Broadway Roy Cohn Ron Liebman, who won in the leading category for Angels in America: Millennium Approaches in 1993.

De Niro appeared on stage to introduce rocker and Tony Awards performer Bruce Springsteen, and started out by saying: "I'm gonna say one thing".

Maroney has been spotted at many "high-end art openings" in the city per Page Six , and he frequently hangs in the Hamptons. When Lawrence was asked about her friendship with ex Aronofsky, she admitted in February that she still loves him.

"The Band's Visit", about Egyptian musicians stranded in a small Israeli town, swept the musical categories with 10 wins. In 2012, he won Best Direction of a Musical for "Once". In the coming months, Sasson Gabai, the veteran Israeli actor who portrayed the lead role of Tawfiq in the film, will be taking on the role on Broadway as well. And we all belong. Bareilles and Groban did a medley honoring Lifetime Achievement Award recipients Chita Rivera and Andrew Lloyd Webber, cast some Harry Potter spells and folded social media into the evening with the fun hashtag #TonyDreaming, which encouraged Twitter users to post pics of their early days in theater - whether it be in elementary, high school or otherwise. Members of Herzfeld's drama department took the Tony stage to serenade her with Seasons of Love from Rent. In other acting awards, Nathan Lane won his third Tony - his first in a dramatic role - for playing Roy Cohn in "Angels in America".

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. How did this happen, and why have I not done a musical before?' It's hard for me to believe those other guys weren't chosen. She went on to say: "To all of you artists out there, just be your true self and the world will take note". Glenda Jackson, 82, won best actress in a play for her fiery portrayal of an elderly woman in "Three Tall Women", and her co-star, Laurie Metcalf, won featured actress. Drilling into the numbers, the live event was up a tiny 2.1% over the Kevin Spacey fronted 71 Tony Awards of June 11, 2017.
