"The Band's Visit", for which Mr. Stachel won best featured actor at Radio City Music Hall in NY, was perhaps the ideal vehicle to deliver him to fame.

CBS, which broadcast the award show, censored his comments on television. Follow along to get a behind-the-scenes look at the show and to see what producers, creative teams and actors are saying after their big wins.

President Donald Trump's, 71, approval ratings may be creeping up these days, but he's still the most hated man on Broadway! "I'm just so thankful to Orin Wolf for being courageous for telling a small story about Arabs and Israelis getting along in a time when we need that more than ever".

Most winners and presenters avoided mentioning Mr. Trump, or Trump-ism by name, while making it clear that their sympathies were with the resistance.

De Niro, a respected Oscar-winning actor, opened his introduction of rocker Bruce Springsteen with a brief quip: "I'm gonna to say one thing".

The Middle East conflict, immigration, LGBT equality, gun control - many social issues came up, explicitly or implicitly, during the ceremony, which was hosted with a light (and musical) touch by Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban. "It's no longer down with Trump, it's F-ck Trump", he said once more this time pumping two fists in the air. "Obama" on the Tony Awards?

The 34-year old British-American actor blasted the U.S. Supreme Court for its recent ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case in his acceptance speech for best leading actor in a play.

That show also yielded the featured actress win to Rosanne star Laurie Metcalf.

The dominance of "The Band's Visit" was widely expected, as was that of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", a dramatic sequel to the iconic series of books that imagines Harry Potter with a Hogwarts-bound son of his own.

The Tonys were being broadcast live on CBS in the USA, with censors managing to bleep the actor's profane message. The crowd responded with thunderous applause and a standing ovation.
