Neil Patrick Harris will host the 67th Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 9th. This marks Harris’ fourth time hosting the star-studded event, which honors the best of Broadway.
“It’ll be more impressive than ever – if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year,” the three-time Emmy award winning actor said in a statement. “Oh wait. No. That can’t … hold on … carry the one … I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock.”
The musical “Kinky Boots” featuring a score by pop star Cyndi Lauper has earned 13 Tony nominations, followed by “Matilda,” a British import, which received 12. This year’s award show will also feature plenty of star power. Several Hollywood heavyweights including Tom Hanks, Cicely Tyson, Laurie Metcalf, Holland Taylor and David Hyde Pierce have been nominated for awards.
