The Popdust Files: neil patrick harris, tony awards

Neil Patrick Harris might soon be able to add “rapper” to his lengthy resume. That is, if Broadway superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda is right behind him to write his rhymes at the 11th hour. In an effort to make musical theater appeal to the masses—and perhaps lure some of the Mavs-Heat fans away from post-game interviews—Harris closed his Tony Awards hosting gig Sunday night with a retrospective rap chronicling the nights’ events, written as they happened by the In the Heights composer (which was pretty reminiscent of his own “Tony moment” in 2008) and director Tommy Kail. From the unbuttoning of his suit jacket to the ceremonious dropping of the mic (“Now go see a mother#*&* Broadway show!” ) Harris certainly has the requisite swag down. But what about his flow? Better than expected! Watch below:
