Neil Patrick Harris To Host Tony Awards
“The discipline of live theatre — doing the same perfect thing night after night, eight times a week — never ceases to amaze me,” the 35-year-old How I Met Your Mother star said in a press release. “I’m truly honored to have been chosen as the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Tony Awards, and I hope to help provide a first-class evening for all.”
The Tonys will air live @ 8-11PM ET/PT on CBS.
Last week, NPH told me that he plans to go back to Broadway someday. “I would love to [move back to NYC] when HIMYM is done,” NPH told JustJared.com. “I think we’ll move back to the east coast. The pulse of the city is so strong, the heartbeat here, I think it’s a better place to live day to day. Definitely theater. [My partner David Burtka is a big theater actor too, so he misses it as well.”
