Can I have my Tom Hooper ‘Les Miz’ closeup please?
See, on Broadway we don’t need extreme closeups to prove we’re singing live. We sing live eight shows a week. Check it! — Neil Patrick Harris
That’s right it’s bigger.
I’m walkin’ down the aisle with some Newsies in tow.
This show is bigger.
Tonight it’s bigger.
If there’s a Newsie you prefer, you let me know…
You’ll get a Newsie in your gift bag when you go! — Neil Patrick Harris
There’s a kid in the middle of nowhere sitting there, living for Tony performances singin’ and flippin’ along with the Pippins and Wickeds and Kinkys, Matildas and Mormonses.
So we might reassure that kid and do something to spur that kid.
Cause I promise you all of us up here tonight.
We WERE that kid…
and now we’re bigger. — Neil Patrick Harris
Cicely Tyson: “I’m not the potter; I’m only the clay.”
Opening number, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tom Kitt
Bring It On Performance
Enjoyed the Bring It On performance. Bravo, Lin-Manuel Miranda!
My husband could even tell it was from the creator of In The Heights. I wasn’t too sure about this being made into a musical, but if anyone could pull it off it’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. As a big fan of In The Heights, and his overall style, I’d like to get ahold of the cast recording.
The cast of Annie performing “It’s a Hard Knock Life,” and Jane Lynch as Miss Hannigan singing “Little Girls.”
Loved the number with cancelled TV stars. Pure brilliance! Bravo!
Featuring Andrew Rannells (“The New Normal”), Megan Hilty (“Smash”), and Laura Benanti (“Go On”), all theater people whose aforementioned TV shows were recently canceled, along with Neil Patrick Harris bragging on his still-successful “How I Met Your Mother.” Written by five-time Tony Award nominee Michael John LaChiusa.

LOVED hearing “Corner of the Sky” & “Magic to Do” from Pippin. We did both in high school! Brings back great memories!
Kinky Boots Performance
The Kinky Boots conveyor belt dance was something else! Wow! Fun choreography!
*applause* Fantastic closing number written by Lin-Manuel Miranda DURING THE SHOW (!) and performed by Neil Patrick Harris with Audra McDonald!
