The Tony Awards are supposed to be about the Broadway nominees, but Neil Patrick Harris, right, stole the show this year as the host with the most. He kicked off the festivities with the crowd-pleaser "It's Not Just for Gays Anymore," got into a sing-off with Hugh Jackman to the theme of "Anything You Can Host I Can Host Better" and wrapped up the evening with a recap rap of the show. Competing for the spotlight was the big winner, "Book of Mormon." The comedy, about two mismatched missionaries in Africa, won nine Tonys, including best musical. At left is co-creator Trey Parker.
