Watch: Neil Patrick Harris raps a full recap of last night’s Tony Awards

Pin it

Even though the Tonys tend to be a lot more entertaining than your average televised award show, they still take more time to watch than I'm necessarily willing to commit to. Thank goodness, then, that triple threat and all around entertainment MVP Neil Patrick Harris thought to summarize the entirety of last night's ceremony in a handy little rap.

The impressive part? It was actually written by In the Heights collaborators Lin-Manuel Miranda and Tommy Kail — and thus memorized and perfected by Harris — during the ceremony. "I write really fast," Miranda explained to the Wall Street Journal.

Now, if only I could arrange for every major cultural or political event could be summarized for me in two minutes of rhymes.
