The Year the Tonys Will Be Legen…Wait For It…

Neil Patrick Harris - this year's LEGENDARY Tony host

Posted by TERESA

So today, my boss in at my theatrical PR firm day job gave me the GLORIOUS news that Neil Patrick Harris has been chosen to host this year’s TONY AWARDS!

Seriously, how perfect a fit is that?!

Anyone who’s familiar with NPH knows that he’s not only an amazing musical theater performer who’s been on Broadway before, but he’s also a musical theater GEEK who’s prone to bursting into showtunes on daytime talk shows:

So, my boss tells me this fact and follows it up by saying “Ugh.  Can you believe it?”  As if it were the lamest choice ever.  (I know.  WHAT?!)

So I say, “Oh, cause I was going to say that this was the most AWESOME THING EVER!”  And she chuckles and says “Well, they’re probably trying to get your age group interested in the Tonys…”

Well.  It’s WORKING.  I haven’t given a Rat’s Patootie about the Tonys for a couple of YEARS now.  And I LOVE theater!  But guaranteed that when the Tonys air on June 7, I’m going to be glued to my TV basking in the glory and majesty that is Neil Patrick Harris.

Also, I’ll be rooting for Billy Elliot, which is a fantastic show.
