Tony Awards 2018: How to Watch, Who’s Presenting and More!

Tony Awards 2018: How to Watch, Who’s Presenting and More!

With a bleep on live television and double fists raised in the air, Robert De Niro got the theatre crowd on its feet at the Tony Awards with a rousing political introduction of his old friend Bruce Springsteen that was focused squarely elsewhere: on President Donald Trump.

Broadway is in danger of becoming a theme park, but Tony voters staged a revolution Sunday night, saying, in effect: No more shows based on famous movies or cartoons.

The two-part spectacle "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" captured six, including best play, book, lighting, sound design, orchestrations and director for John Tiffany, who asked the crowd to sing "Happy Birthday" to his boyfriend.

Metcalf's award marked the second consecutive Tony for the actress, who a year ago won for best lead actress in a play for her performance in "A Doll's House, Part 2".

Nathan Lane took home his third Tony award for Angels In America as closeted conservative lawyer Roy Cohn, who died of AIDS.

Stachel, 26, is making his Broadway debut in "The Band's Visit", which stars Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") and the rising star Katrina Lenk.

Kushner went even further, calling Trump's presidency "the Hitler mistake" that put a "borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House". The smart bet was that Broadway would give her a Tony for her script. Tragic for those of us who can't afford tickets to his show, but on the plus side, it was significantly shorter than the E Street Band's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction speech. Though "Mean Girls" was nominated for 12 awards, the stage adapation of the Tina Fey film did not win any. And before you knew it, almost everyone in the audience at Radio City Music Hall was on their feet. Bareilles and Groban will try to do that while also eviscerating any memory of last year's Tony host, Kevin Spacey, who since then has been accused by at least 24 men of sexual misconduct or assault.

In an upset, "Once on This Island" beat out "My Fair Lady" and "Carousel" for best revival of a musical.

In other wins, Glenda Jackson added to her impressive resume with a Tony Award for best actress in a play for her work in a revival of Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women". Viewership spiked in 2016 due to "Hamilton, " only to drop sharply previous year.
