In addition, the show featured a special performance from the 2017 Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen. Tina Fey is a superstar and she wrote a snappy, smart script for "Mean Girls", a musical based on her popular 2004 movie.
The victor for best featured actress in a musical was Lindsay Mendez for her work in the revival of "Carousel".
The Hacksaw Ridge star, 34, dedicated the win to the LGBTQ community and said the play was a rejection of bigotry, shame and oppression. All three performers had moving speeches-Stachel talked about his former denial of his Middle Eastern heritage and the power of the musical's diversity ("I am part of a cast of actors who thought we'd never get to play our own races", he said). Harry Potter and the Cursed Child star Anthony Boyle, per the one he read, is a "perfect precious cinnamon roll".
The intimate show, "Springsteen on Broadway" - or as De Niro referred to it, "Jersey Boy" - features the Boss performing his music and sharing stories from his 2016 autobiography "Born to Run".
The biggest victor of the night was The Band's Visit, a musical about an Egyptian band visiting an Israeli desert town.
The Band's Visit won a whopping ten awards total-in fact, the only award it lost was Scenic Design.

"So this is for the people who lose/Most of us have been in your shoes", they sang in the upbeat opening number.
Angels In America was named best play revival on Sunday.
The rocker received his special Tony at the 72nd annual awards from fellow musician Billy Joel at a gala ceremony at Radio City Music Hall hosted by singer-songwriter-actors Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles. Members of Herzfeld's drama department took the Tony stage to serenade her with Seasons of Love from Rent.
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. Viewership spiked in 2016 due to "Hamilton, " only to drop sharply past year.
