Neil Patrick Harris may have handed Tony Awards hosting duties back over to Hugh Jackman this year, but you better believe the 2014 nominee will still be singing and dancing his way on stage at some point.
Performers for the 68th annual Tony Awards were announced on Thursday and include the “How I Met Your Mother Star,” along with Idina Menzel, Alan Cumming, Fantasia, Knight, Patti LaBelle and Sting, plus Sutton Foster with the cast of “Violet,” and the cast of “Wicked” to celebrate the show’s 10th anniversary.
Cumming will reprise his Tony Award-winning role in a performance from the revival of “Cabaret” and 2014 Tony nominee Menzel will sing a song from the new musical “If/Then.”
LaBelle, Knight and “American Idol” alum Fantasia will take the stage to perform with the cast of “After Midnight,” while Sting will perform a song from his upcoming musical, “The Last Ship.”
