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.

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

The legendary actor urged the audience to vote in November and lauded Springsteen for his own political commitment before the singer sat at a piano for a moving performance based on his "Springsteen on Broadway" show that had him singing his classic hit, "My Hometown".

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". What's more, Mr. Path won as the best highlighted on-screen character for his depiction of a seething Roy Cohn, the conservative attorney who covertly engaged in sexual relations with men and furthermore had AIDS.

It was also up for Best Book of a Musical (for Jennifer Lee) and Best Original Score Written For The Theatre (for Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) but both of those were won by The Band's Visit as well.

Best Play: "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two".

USA musical The Band's Visit was the other big victor. "And I'm excited at the prospect of sharing this beautifully told story with more audiences". Leguizamo himself, accepting a special Tony, brought up the fate of immigrant children in detention centers and the deaths of thousands of Puerto Ricans in Hurricane Maria.

A starry revival of Tony Kushner's 7½-hour "Angels in America", which transferred to Broadway from the National Theater in London, was named the best play revival for an acclaimed production that cemented the play's claim as the best American drama of the late 20th century. Alternate chosen people in the class were Ariana DeBose for Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, Renée Fleming for Carousel, Ashley Park for Mean Girls and Diana Rigg for My Fair Lady.
