Tony Awards Razzles & Dazzles

8 June 2014 witnessed the glitz and glamour of Broadway as its biggest stars converge to celebrate drama, flair, pizzazz and flamboyance of American theatre. Four-time Tony Awards host, Hugh Jackman ditched his Wolverine-claws and rugged leather jacket for a crisp and elegant suit and sartorial beard that oozed masculine charm. What’s more, he wowed the star-studded audience with his singing and energetic dancing, much to the delight of his legions of fans.

Fresh off his 10-year stint as the suave Barney Stinson on the wildly popular television sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, Neil Patrick Harris scandalised and seduced with his electrifying performance in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Even his performance at the Awards ceremony drew much chatter for the fabulous Hedwig @ Harris-in-drag licked Samuel L. Jackson’s glasses, gave Sting a lap dance and made out with his (Harris’s) husband who was seated in the front row.

Needless to say, it was all hot,  just like the Tony Awards 2014!
