  1. Opening number by NPH was GREAT!!!! The show, overall was really good. IMHO very entertaining.

  2. Wow, Book of Morman looks great! I am so looking forward to seeing that show.

  3. Daniel Radcliffe was born to be a comedic actor - not that what he did here was so funny, more that he just oozes charisma and presence when he's out there having fun. I can't wait to see what movies and other projects he does now that he can get away from being Harry Potter. Clearly... a musical is in the cards, if he wants it, but whatever he does, I hope it's something funny. :p

  4. If anyone doubted Neil Patrick Harris' talent his closing "rap" which could not have been rehearsed much since it incorporated many of the winners was amazing. All in all a terrific show.

  5. OK, so the Tonys are pretty gay to start with. But seeing Jackman and NPH argue over who was the "top" and dancing with each other brought a whole new level of gay. Luckily a funny one.

  6. There is only one Broadway, and only one Neil Patrick Harris what an unbelievable talent . . .Sondheim must write him a show, that is just too much talent to waste on the little screen !

    A great evening for all !

  7. This opening number manages to top the classic closing number he did in 2009. Brilliantly written and impeccably performed. Who else but NPH could have done this number, the piece with Hugh Jackman, hosted the show, pulled off the closing rap, AND perform his number from "Company." The guy is just amazing!!!

  8. Neil PAtrick Harris is a GOD. Best in-joke of the night---NPH and Jackman singing in duet "But if baby I'm the bottom you're the top!"

  9. "It's a two hour, live-action, barely affordable, un-lip synced version of Glee" hahahahahaha. I'd love to see NPH's character come back to Glee. Totally agree with gr8guyca about him.

    Would love to see "War Horse", "Book of Mormon" and "The Normal Heart" but it'll probably have to be the touring versions that come to Los Angeles. I hope Rory O'Malley is in TBOM, he's way hot.

  10. Overall... I thought it was the best Tony Awards show I can remember! NPH is truly a gifted and talented performer; a great host! Musical numbers were very good, skits songs (like the opening, closing, and the songs with NPH and H. Jackman, were witty and entertaining. Danielle Radcliffe PROVED that he deserves to be on a Broadway stage; case closed! I thought the weakest moments were some of the acceptance speeches by the "non" musical actors. Some just plain weird and out of place. But... I loved the show... NPH should get another Emmy for hosting!

  11. I like NPH. He is not however a Broadway singer capable of singing Bobby in Company. I say this after having seen him attempt the role live. Mr Rad liff is just plain bad in a musi cal. I felt sorry for the boy eveen more so than in Equus.
    Oh Broadway you can b so horrible(Sister Act and that very amatuer Production of Pris cilla!) uggh

  12. Does anyone know what Frances McDormand's weird-ass behavior when accepting her award was all about? She seemed to be rushing off the stage in her jean jacket to get somewhere.

    Posted by: MichaelJ | Jun 13, 2011 11:01:21 AM

  13. NPH's end rap was written by Lin Manuel Miranda, not improvised. Wish they would still let PBS broadcast the other awards CBS doesn't care about. Athol Fugard deserves more than a 12 second clip.

  14. I am really not into these award shows at all. I don't even watch the Oscar's. However, the tv happened to be on this channel for the opening number and I never changed the channel. Very entertaining Neil Patrick Harrison was terrific! Who knows I may even go see a m****r f******g Broadway show now! I also loved Robin Williams line about having the only beard in the room. The only gay slur I remember all night was from Chris Rock.

    Posted by: rinca | Jun 13, 2011 11:34:31 AM

  15. NPH is brilliant, probably not the best singer, but very good. Hugh Jackman is good looking, funny, open minded....

    Posted by: Matt26 | Jun 13, 2011 2:11:24 PM

  16. loved the tony's and did see most of the shows...saw book of Mormon on a fluke and sat in the front row. Josh Gad should have one best actor award...he was truly remarkable and so underrated as a talented actor...he does it all sings and dances and acts...amazing!! Andrew was great, but that was expected, Josh was a surprise. but like most award shows...the awards are given based on the person's body of work, rather than the actual performance. Book of Mormon swept the awards and younger actors are usually overlooked.

  17. NPH opening number was an instant classic. They really should have him host the Oscars next year.

    Posted by: jaragon | Jun 13, 2011 6:08:32 PM

  18. NPH is just awesome.What a great gay role model as talented,likeable and accesible.He seems so comfortable in who he is.bravo! I hope somone will give him a show after this.The only problem is that this overall performance was so great.How go you top this? He should be very proud of himself.

    Posted by: Bob | Jun 13, 2011 6:48:22 PM

  19. NPH, Huge Ackman and Daniel Radcliffe are all fantastic, because they keep their egos in check and never act like "victims of fame."

    I watched the first Harry Potter film a few months ago and got teary-eyed, they've all grown up so well. It's great watching Radcliffe stretch and challenge himself. I'm sure I'll be watching him for a long time to come.
