WATCH: Neil Patrick Harris’ Epic Opening Number From The 67th Annual Tony Awards

For his fourth stint as host of the Tony wards — a role he seems destined to have for life now that fellow musical theater queen Hugh Jackman has moved on to greener, golder pastures — Neil Patrick Harris pulled out all the stops…and Mike Tyson. Still, we felt the Oscars were a touch gayer.

    God, what a soul-destroying spectacle.
    It’s like the shows they put on in Vegas for all the tourists.
    Which is mainly who Broadway caters to these days, isn’t it?

    THat was over the top awesome! Good singing, NPH, catty jokes, and Diana Ross. But what do I know, just a bearish mid-western blue jean wearing guy who never watches the Tony’s.

    They achieved exactly what they probably set out to do, they name-dropped two dozen shows into a fun & entertaining opening number in the spirit of Broadway. Can’t ask for more than that!

    Well, I would have loved watching it but Queerty is still not iPad friendly. Reading the article was nice but just a big blank space where the video should be. Come on Queerty. Do I really need to fire up the old CRAIG computer to read your site?

    Whoda thunk it? Doogie Howser? Neil Patrick Harris is phenomenal. What a talent! (excuse any spelling errors. There’s no spellcheck on this damn message board. lol)

    NPH’s opening number was fantastic. Then the show went downhill from there. Over the last 5 or more years, all of the musical numbers sound the same. Hard to believe they actually give awards for music and lyrics when they all just copy off of each other. I always record it and watch it later so I can skip all the boring stuff.
