Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris will be the 2011 Tony Awards host on June 12.
“I’m honored and stoked to have been asked to host the 2011 Tony Awards. It should be a great show — we’ve got a fantastic mix of live performances, a few secret surprises, and since they’re closed for retooling, we’re using all the rigging equipment from Spider-Man. What could possibly go wrong?” he said.
“We’re thrilled to have Neil back as our host. And we’re even happier he fits in the ‘Spider-Man’ rigging”, Tony executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss said.
Last year the event was hosted by Sean Hayes.
