After much buzz around who would replace the four time Tony host, Neil Patrick Harris, the answer has finally been revealed! Hugh Jackman will host the 2014 awards show which comes once a year in June to honor the plays, musicals, actors, and creative teams that made these productions throughout the year. Jackman is no stranger to the Tonys, having performed on them with shows like Boy from Oz, and even hosting them three times before. I’m sure a lot of Tonys fans will miss Harris’s shenanigans and jokes that have filled his previous times hosting. But, Harris could be nominated for the Tony because he is set to star as the lead in the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Itch. The Tonys are a time to celebrate the art form that us theater fans love and it will definitely be interesting this year with two theater icons gracing the Tonys in different ways than before.
What do you think of this return to a Tony hosting vet? Would you have liked to see a fresh face on the stage of Radio City? Are you excited to see the return of the Boy from Oz? Let us know in the comments!
