  • Good evening.

  • Good evening.

  • I'm teen heartthrob Neil Patrick Harris.

  • It's an honor to be back hosting the 65th Annual Tony Awards

  • and I'd like to deliver a very important message on behalf of all of us who care so deeply about this community.

  • If you've seen a show, then you already know how magical theater can be.

  • It's a two-hour, live-action, barely affordable, un-lip-synced version of "Glee."

  • So, this song goes out to the rest of you--

  • those who've never seen theater before--

  • because Broadway has never been broader--

  • it's not just for gays anymore!

  • If you feel like someone that this world excludes,

  • it's no longer only for dudes who like dudes.

  • Attention every breeder, your invited to the theater.

  • It's not just for gays anymore.

  • The glamour of Broadway is beckoning straights

  • the people who marry in all 50 states.

  • We're asking every hetero to get to know us better-o.

  • It's not just for gays anymore!

  • It's for fine, upstanding Christians who know all the songs from Grease.

  • It's for sober-minded businessmen who yearn for some release.

  • So, put down your Playboy and go make a plan

  • to pick up a Playbill and feel like a man.

  • There's so much to discover with your different-gendered lover.

  • it's not just for gays, the gays and the Jews,

  • and cousins in from out of town you have to amuse,

  • and the sad, embittered malcontents who write the reviews,

  • and also foreign tourists, and the groups of senior citizens,

  • and well-to-do suburbanites, and liberal intellectuals

  • though that group is really only Jews and homosexuals

  • I've lost my train of thought.

  • Oh yes, it's not just for gays anymore.

  • See what I'm talking about?

  • Thank you.

  • Wow! You can smell the testosterone in the room, can't you?

  • Look at this placeit's full of straight people.

  • Angela Lansbury, you're super-hot. Those things real?

  • Stephen Colbert, you're straight as they come.

  • Vanessa Redgrave, you're straight.

  • Joe Mantellothanks for coming.

  • Hey, Christie Brinkley is here, that's fanta-

  • I'm gonna try that again.

  • When I'm up on stage, there are some...

  • I don't know what I'm doing, oh my god!

  • When I'm up on stage

  • there's lots of men who like to watch.

  • In fact, one guy sent a Twit-pic of his crotch.

  • Nice. It was worth it.

  • Totally improvised!

  • Broadway touches parts of me

  • that never have been touched.

  • I love it very [CENSORED] much.

  • Right, well said! Well said, sir. Wow!

  • I mean, come on, isn't it fabulous...

  • I mean, isn't it awesome?

  • We've got swarms of Mormons, showgirls, sailors

  • dancing boys and nuns

  • plus a Spider facing, death-defying budget over-runs.

  • So, people from Red states, and people from Blue,

  • a big Broadway rainbow is waiting for you.

  • Come in and be inspired, there's no sodomy required.

  • Cause it's not just for gays, it's not just for gays

  • we'd be twice as proud to have you if you go both ways

  • Broadway is not just for gays anymore!

  • [WOW]

  • So there's that...

  • We have a great show in store for you tonight.

  • We are live on Broadway from the Beacon Theater.

  • Beautiful, right?

  • Look at this place. Subtle. Understated. Just the way I like it.

  • There's one tiny allen wrench....

Good evening.
