Neil Patrick Harris Confirms He Won't Host the 2015 Tony Awards

Neil Patrick Harris suits up to attend the opening night of King And I at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in Lincoln Center on Thursday (April 16) in New York City.

The 41-year-old actor was joined at the event by Ethan Hawke and Cherry Jones.

The well-reviewed stars of the show, Kelli O’Hara and Ken Watanabe, got all dressed up after the show to attend the opening night party!

Neil recently revealed that he won’t be taking on any hosting gigs anytime soon.

“I’ve just spent a whole lot of time in another hosting capacity,” Neil told Broadway referring to the 2015 Oscars. “I think I’ll take a little respite.”

“I’m so proud of David. It’s great to see him do a Broadway show again; it’s been 10 years since the last time he was here,” Neil continued. “There’s been a lot of attention focused my way, and I’m so happy that the spotlight is shining back on him.”

FYI: Kelli is wearing a Carmen Marc Valvo dress, an Amanda Pearl clutch, and Atelier Swarovski jewelry.
