Neil Patrick Harris: Tony show-opener will be “pretty epic”

 

“How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris will host the star-studded event, which will include appearances by Alan Cumming, Jon Cryer, Jesse Eisenberg, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sally Field, Barrett Foa, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hanks, Megan Hilty, Scarlett Johansson, Anna Kendrick, Cyndi Lauper, Audra McDonald, Matthew Morrison, Martha Plimpton, Hal Prince, Zachary Quinto, Andrew Rannells, Mike Tyson, Sigourney Weaver, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Steven Van Zandt.

 

Harris, who’s hosting the Tonys for the fourth time, told “CBS This Morning” that the show opener will be “pretty epic.” He added, “It is a massive ordeal, the Tony Awards. You have to have each show, with each cast, with their own sets…It’s massive factory in the back. It’s very exciting.”

 

This year marks the 67th anniversary of the Tony Awards, which were first held on April 6, 1947, at the Waldorf Astoria’s Grand Ballroom. This year, the festivities will take place at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

 

The Lauper-scored “Kinky Boots” has earned a leading 13 Tony Award nominations, with the British import “Matilda: The Musical” close behind with 12.
