From host to Sugar Daddy! Neil Patrick Harris changed out of his Tony Awards tux on Sunday, June 8, into something much more punk rock. After walking the red carpet with longtime partner David Burtka, Harris, 40, changed into platform boots, a jean skirt and top, and a massive long blonde wig to play his character Hedwig from the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, singing the song “Sugar Daddy.”
During the performance, the multi-talented star left the stage, surprising A-Listers like Orlando Bloom, Sting, and Samuel L. Jackson in the audience with his flashy moves.
After years of working with the Broadway community, Harris picked up his first Tony Award (for Best Actor in a Musical) for his role in the revival.
“To my family, David Burtka, I love you so much, and I am so happy that we’ve gotten to do this,” Harris said as Burtka cheered from the audience. “Thank you for your sacrifices and for putting up with me during all of this. To my kids Harper and Gideon, I am so sorry that I haven’t been able to spend as much time with you as I wish I could given the show. I promise as soon as this is done I’ll be able to read books to you and put you to sleep.”
