by Marypublished on July 9, 2022

Neil Patrick Harris performed the big opening with help from the casts of Catch Me If You CanSister ActThe Book of MormonHow to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Anything Goes. Also taking part were Brooke Shields, the actress soon to star in The Addams Family; Stephen Colbert, who starred alongside Harris in the New York Philharmonic’s Company; and Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale, from The Motherf**ker With the Hat.

Watch (or re-watch) Harris perform the big opening number and point out his favorites in the audience, including the “super hot” Shields, who must consult her notes for the lyrics to “It’s Not Just For Gays Anymore.”
