I love musical theater. And if you don't already know that, you clearly haven't been on this blog long enough. In recent years, I really think they should have just renamed it the Neil Patrick Harris show. He's hosted the Tony's 4 TIMES (watch my favorite opening numbers). 3 were consecutive 2011-2013, and only 2014's Host, Hugh Jackman, has had that streak!
This year, Hugh Jackman is returning for his for his 4th year. His 3-year streak was 2003-2005. See his past opening numbers (except his '03 one because the internet doesn't seem to have it) below. He also had a cameo on NPH's 2011 Tony gig (watch below) and has since hosted the Oscars in 2009 (and performed "The Musical is Back" with Beyonce and others and the movie cast of Les Miz), but let's be real—live singing and awesome puns and monologues beat the Oscars any day—at least in my book.
I'm lucky enough to see theater at least once a year. I'm even luckier to know a Tony voter who sometimes gives me a free ticket to his show. Musical theater is one of my favorite pastimes and definitely my #1 guilty pleasure. I'm so excited for Hugh to return to the Tony stage, what about you? Comment below if you're excited and what is your favorite musical of all time.
