    Neil Patrick Harris to Host Tony Awards Again

    Elysa Gardner, USA TODAY 10:04 a.m. EDT May 9, 2013

    The “How I Met Your Mother” star will also serve as producer.

    To no one’s surprise, Neil Patrick Harris, star of TV’s How I Met Your Mother and various stage productions through the years, has signed on to once again host the Tony Awards.

    Harris has presided over three Tonys broadcasts in the past four years, including the previous two, charming critics and fans with his affable wit. This year, as he did in 2012, the actor will also serve as a producer, alongside executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment.

    Harris said in a statement that he was “very excited” to be back as master of ceremonies. “It’ll be more impressive than ever—if my math is correct, it will be 267 times bigger than last year. Oh, wait. No, that can’t . . . hold on . . . carry the one . . . I’m awful at math. But rest assured, the show will rock!”

    CBS will present the Tony Awards from Radio City Music Hall on June 9, 8-11 p.m. live ET/delayed PT.

    If Bob Hope can host the oscars 14 times I’m fine with Harris hosting the show for a fourth time because he always does a good job and if it he can sing all the tony winning scores in one song I would want him back. Hopefully like Jackman Harris can bring greatness to the Tony’s.

    Which songs do we think each show will perform?

    Though some shows perform their most famous song (Wicked, Anything Goes, Newsies, How to Succeed, etc), most only perform songs that don’t give away too much plot (Once, Nice Work if You Can Get It, The Book of Mormon, Next to Normal, etc).

    “Kinky Boots” will likely perform the flashy “Sex Is in the Heel,” but I’d hope they go for the much more significant “I’m Not My Father’s Son” instead.

    Both are terrific numbers.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see Pippin go with “No Time At All.” Shows in the past, such as Shrek, Catch Me if You Can and if I recall correctly, The Drowsy Chaperone have picked less important but showstopping numbers that show off their most acclaimed/award-winning cast member. A song like this would follow the trend.
