Mark the third of December in your calendars, folks, because that's the day Neil Patrick Harris is returning to Broadway in all of his musical glory.
For one night and one night only, the How I Met Your Mother star will portray Lee Harvey Oswald in a benefit concert of Assassins, the hugely successful Broadway musical that won a whopping FIVE Tony Awards when it first appeared way back in the prehistoric year of 2004.
Here's how the Roundabout Theatre describes the show:
"Assassins is the show that gives new meaning to the phrase “killer musical.” With a stylish Stephen Sondheim score and a provocative book by John Weidman, Assassins brings to the stage a (shooting) gallery of some of history’s most notorious players—the men and women who attempted to kill American presidents."
Oh, and did we mention that Neil Patrick Harris will be star…
…Did we already mention that?
Sorry, sometimes we just experience brain freeze when anything involves NPH.
We love that guy so much!!!
