Radio City Music Hall
Courtney B. Vance won the first Tony Award of the night, taking the trophy for best featured actor in a play after host Neil Patrick Harris opened the show with a high-octane song boasting this night would be bigger than ever.
It’s an award show that will be legend…wait for it…dary. Or at least that’s what Neil Patrick Harris promises. The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star will be returning to host the 2013 Tony Awards .
Producers of the show were forced to find a new home for the 2011 event after Cirque du Soleil moved into the 6,000-seat Rockefeller Center arena with its $50 million acrobatic rock opera “Zarkana.” The Tonys had been hosted at Radio City from 1997-2010.
Samsung took over Radio City Music Hall last night to show off the newest version of its best-selling Galaxy smartphone, the S IV. It’s expected out at the end of next month.
