Tony Awards honor Chicago's David Cromer and Laurie Metcalf

"I'm gonna say one thing: "F*** Trump!" he exclaimed".

"I'm gonna say one thing: F-k Trump", De Niro shouted, raising his arms into the air as the crowd cheered for almost half a minute. "It's no longer down with Trump, it's F*** Trump!"

But the biggest surprise of the night came when Robert De Niro, appearing on stage to introduce Springsteen, used the "F-bomb" against U.S. President Donald Trump. In addition, the show featured a special performance from the 2017 Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen. It's a sentiment that certainly applies to the kids from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School theater department, whose performance of Rent's "Seasons of Love" earned the most genuine standing ovation of the night and left the A-list crowd wiping away tears.

The Tony Awards will offer a limited number of student tickets for its annual telecast on Sunday, June 10, at Radio City Music Hall.

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

"In 'The Band's Visit, ' music gives people hope and makes borders disappear", producer Orin Wolf said upon accepting the best new musical crown, saying It offers a message of unity in a world that "more and more seems bent on amplifying our differences". Mendez, who plays millworker Carrie Pipperidge in "Carousel, " said that at the beginning of her career "I was told to change my name from Mendez to Matthews or I wouldn't work".

The show stars Hailey Kilgore of Happy Valley, a 19-year-old making her Broadway debut in a story of ill-fated love on a tropical island.
