The Band's Visit, the Broadway musical based on an Israeli film, swept the Tony Awards on Sunday night, taking home 10 prizes - including best musical - at the ceremony in NY.

She concluded: "To all the artists out there, be your true self and the world will take note".

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

Getting buzz from appearing on the telecast can dictate a show's future, both on Broadway and on tour. Viewership spiked in 2016 due to "Hamilton, " only to drop sharply a year ago.
