Neil Patrick Harris’ Opening Number at the Tony’s — BRILLIANT!!

Written by , Posted in General

When I was young, my father forced me to go to the theater. He took me to see ‘A Chorus Line’ at seven years old, and despite my complaining, he insisted I’d love it. He was right. Since then, I’ve dated a few guys whom I’ve asked to take me to a show, and they all denied my request, followed by a lecture on how only gay men enjoy the theater. I’d scratch my head with confusion, and remind them that my father isn’t gay, and he loves it. As it turns out, Jewish men are an exception to the rule. Neil Patrick Harris addressed these stereotypes in his very funny opening number for the Tony’s, which included a masterful handling of Brooke Shields’ singing flub. Watch below.

    Love it! Thank you for your posting. I just text my boyfriend to take me to the theater.

    • Ha! I hope he does it! I’ve never had a man take me. Ever!

         I wish mine too.

    NPH, being well-known in theater acting, was so fantastic in that performance! Man, I wish I’d be able to watch his Broadway shows. But one thing that sticks to me is the fact that he looks good in a suit – or maybe I’m just used to him wearing one in How I Met Your Mother.
