What Did Robert De Niro Say At The Tony Awards?

As they applauded and cheered, he continued, "It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'f**k Trump'".

That initial victor was Andrew Garfield, taking home the award for best actor in a play as Prior Walter in the revival of "Angels in America", Tony Kushner's groundbreaking epic of gay rights in Reagan-era America.

Given that show's success on the evening, it wasn't a huge shock that Frozen did not win Best Musical at the Tony Awards. What the Oscar victor had said was, "I'm going to say this: F*** Trump".

The performance was in celebration of the production's nomination for Best Musical, which was one of three Tony nominations it received after opening earlier this year. 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. The Tony Awards crowd proved a perfectly suitable liberal environment for a fresh statement, featuring for example, the outspoken anti-Trump survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Rachel Brosnahan, the marvelous Mrs. Maisel herself, even introduced the show's performance, since Tony Shalhoub is her TV dad.

All in all, the evening was pleasant, if not particularly dynamic.

The Tonys, hosted by singer-songriter-actors Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles, capped another record year on Broadway with $1.7 billion in box office receipts, despite the smallest number of new productions in 20 years.

"Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else", he said.

Best Revival of a Musical: "Once on This Island".

But The Band's Visit wasn't the only Israel presence at the awards ceremony.
