Neil Patrick Harris expecting Tony Awards ceremony to be "edgiest"


UPI News Service, 06/11/2011 

Neil Patrick Harris says the prominent place of "The Book of Mormon" among this year's Tony nominees should add spice to the awards show in New York.

Harris told The Hollywood Reporter the play is loaded with controversial statements about religion, which is causing some problems for the Tony Awards producers.

"They're struggling right now to see what number they can put in the show," Harris said. "If it doesn't get by the censors in the end, I can see myself announcing, 'Please stand by for two minutes while we black out.' It should be the edgiest Tonys for a while."

Harris said the change of venue will also make things interesting. The show will be broadcast live Sunday from the Beacon Theater, a smaller location than Radio City Music Hall.

"We have to play to the size constraints," he said.

"They had to build a tent behind the theater, to house whole casts waiting to go on. That will be exciting. They'll all be stuffed in a tent together."
