Before Neil Patrick Harris dominated the Tony conversation, Jackman himself was a pretty good Tony host himself, because he really has a lot of stage talent. So this year, the American Theater Wing has asked Jackman to return as host of this year's Tony Awards to air in June. I like Jackman, and thing he will do a fine job hosting this year. But let's face it, last year's opening number has set a pretty high bar for Tony hosting performances, although I bet we will see some NPH along the way. After the craziness of the Oscars has died down, I will start looking at the Tony Awards, which are starting to heat up in New York as many Tony contenders make their Broadway debuts.
