Tony Awards honor Chicago's David Cromer and Laurie Metcalf

He added: "I am part of a cast of actors who never believed that they'd be able to portray their own races, and we're doing that".

Garfield won best actor in a play for his acclaimed performance in the "Angels in America" revival, a monumental two-part drama about AIDS during the Reagan years.

Praising playwright Tony Kushner, an emotional Lane said, "Tony wrote one of the greatest plays of the 20th century, and it is still speaking to us as powerfully as ever in the midst of such political insanity".

Kushner took the stage and pointed out there were 21 weeks until the midterm elections in the United States: "Twenty-one weeks to save our democracy, to heal our country and to heal our planet".

Veteran actress Chita Rivera and British musical impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber received lifetime achievement awards, while actor, writer and comedian John Leguizamo was given a special Tony for his one-man show, "Latin History for Morons".

Billy Joel gave his friend Bruce Springsteen a special Tony Award. The Boss thanked the crowd for making him "feel so welcome on their block" and then walked off stage without singing a single song. So this is for the people who lose. Garfield's early victory allowed the TV broadcast to begin with a familiar face from the movie "Spider-Man", ideal for younger viewers who then got to see both Fey and a scene from her nominated musical, "Mean Girls".

In her acceptance speech, telling Tony hopefuls to be true to themselves, Mendez said that when she had first moved to NY, she had been told she would need to change her name. She said she was happy to be in a production that "celebrates diversity and individuality".

Most Famous Goat: Once On This Island won best musical revival, meaning that its resident goat is now the most famous goat on Broadway. She concluded: "To all the artists out there, be your true self and the world will take note". Onstage guests were volunteers and staffers from three organisations that bring relief to areas impacted by natural disasters. Broadway producers will be thankful this year that the telecast won't have to compete with any NBA Finals or Stanley Cup playoff games.
