Radio City Music Hall
Courtney B. Vance won the first Tony Award of the night, taking the trophy for best featured actor in a play after host Neil Patrick Harris opened the show with a high-octane song boasting this night would be bigger than ever.
Broadway’s biggest night is finally here!
Emmy Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris, who stars on CBS’ hit comedy “How I Met Your Mother”, will host the 67th Annual Tony Awards.
Producers of the show were forced to find a new home for the 2011 event after Cirque du Soleil moved into the 6,000-seat Rockefeller Center arena with its $50 million acrobatic rock opera “Zarkana.” The Tonys had been hosted at Radio City from 1997-2010.
Neil Patrick Harris will return as host for the upcoming Tony Awards.
