Neil Patrick Harris To Host Tony Awards On CBS

NEW YORK (AP) — Neil Patrick Harris will return as host for the upcoming Tony Awards.

The star of the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” and a Broadway veteran had hosted the awards two years ago. Producers of the annual show honoring Broadway theater said Tuesday that he would take over from former “Will & Grace” actor Sean Hayes, who was last year’s host.

Harris joked that producers of the show had borrowed the rigging equipment from the troubled “Spider-Man” musical. He asked: “What could possibly go wrong?”

This time, the ceremony will be at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan’s Upper West Side after several years at Radio City Music Hall. The awards will be handed out June 12 in a telecast aired on CBS.
