NPH To Star In Company

We can't get enough of him!

Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to star in Stephen Sondheim's Company, a musical about a bachelor, his love life and his crazy married friends. It will be presented by the New York Philharmonic in April.

Of course, Harris will play Robert (aka Bobby), an un-pin-downable single man celebrating his 35th birthday. It's similar to his character Barney on How I Met Your Mother.

NPH said:

“I think one could see Bobby as a bit of a playboy, a sort of serial dater without much behind it. I don’t know that Barney has the deep-seated desire to couple up like Bobby probably does. But then again, Bobby doesn’t have to respond to laugh tracks.”

Performances will run from April 7th-9th and will be produced and directed by Lonny Price.

And Neil is almost as excited to do it as we are!

He added:

Sondheim fills "every beat and note and moment with some intention. It just allows the performer a great opportunity to mine as deep as they choose. My day job requires a shallowness that will be fun to play against.”

Ha. Can't wait!

    Blah blah blah rainbows. Blah blah blah gay brotherhood. Blah blah blah some movie no one will pay to see.

    I really do like NPH but I feel that you only write about him so much because he is gay.

    35th birthday? That's rather straining credibility isn't it?
