Ever since “Chicago” won the Best Picture Oscar in 2003, Hollywood seems to be going back to Broadway for its material, like it did back in the ’50s and ’60s.
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.
