Excellent choice, American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League!
He'll attract eyeballs for sure!
For the second time in his career, Neil Patrick Harris will host the Tony Awards, airing live this year from the Beacon Theatre in New York City. With the official announcement came this statement from Neil, saying:
“I’m honored and stoked to have been asked to host the 2011 Tony Awards. It should be a great show – we’ve got a fantastic mix of live performances, a few secret surprises and since they’re closed for retooling, we’re using all the rigging equipment from Spider-Man. What could possibly go wrong?”
Ah, the first of many jokes at the expense of Bono and Company, we're sure!
Well, we wish you a lot of luck with hosting, Neil. If you do as well as you did two years ago, there's another Emmy with your name on it!
