The things one has to do to promote the Tony Awards.
One of my favorite performers, Neil Patrick Harris, co-hosted today’s Live with Kelly. During the show the duo played with water guns and Neil rode around on a tricycle. I love that he’s game for just about anything!
As for how Harris feels about hosting the award show for the third time, Neil told The Hollywood Reporter:
I think in many ways it’s more challenging because I don’t want to just rest on what I’ve done before. So I’m trying to come up with new ways to do things. Thankfully, the meat of the Tony telecast is the performances from the shows, so the awards show kind of creates itself around the season, and then I fill in based on the vibe of the season in general. I’m happy that there’ll be so many legitimately good performances on the show. That was my big worry.
The 2012 Tony Awards will be presented a the Beacon Theatre on Sunday, June 10 and broadcast live on CBS from 8pm to 11pm (ET/PT time delay).
