In a move that will please both lovers of spontaneously choreographed dance numbers and the interwebs (I suspect there's a cross section here), Neil Patrick Harris has been selected to host this year's Tony Awards on Sunday June 7th. While I'm sure NPH was selected for his past work in musical theater as well as his charismatic presence on "How I Met Your Mother", I can't help but feel like it was Dr. Horrible and his delightfully disturbed sing-along blog that really sold the American Theater on him. Will Joss's masterwork get a name drop? How singy and dancey will NPH get? Will I actually watch the Tony Awards????
Yes. Yes, I will.
