The Drama League has happily announced that their dear friend Whoopi Goldberg will be hosting their 30th Annual Musical Celebration of Broadway. This year’s benefit gala honors Neil Patrick Harris, the Golden Globe Nominee and Emmy Award winner currently on the television show “How I Met Your Mother.”

The Drama League of New York has served as a not-for-profit arts advocacy and education organization since 1916. The League has thrown annual Broadway celebrations since 1984 with past honorees including Angela Lansbury, Liza Minnelli, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Audra McDonald.

Whoopi Goldberg is of the small order of artists who have won Academy, Grammy, Emmy and Tony Awards, and has incorporated her Broadway musical start in popular film productions such as Sister Act. She has produced and starred in a number of plays and won the Tony Award for producing Thoroughly Modern Millie. She is currently a great addition to the television talk show The View.

Whoopi Goldberg’s cheeky personality and insightful point of view is a perfect fit for the festive black-tie gathering of 500 of New York City’s top celebrities and art supporters who will celebrate Harris’ musical theater career in true Broadway musical form. Neil Harris has starred in notable productions such as Rent, Sweeney Todd, Cabaret, Assassins and more.

    Whoopi, there is nothing in this world or the next that is going to make it right to Okay and/or Support Gay Activists in their actions. And it won’t get you into heaven.

      The two comments that are shown here come from homophobic individuals who cannot see beyond their up-turned noses. Neil Patrick Harris’ homosexuality has nothing to do with the fact that he is a talented singer, dancer and actor and if you weren’t such small-minded individuals you would understand that we are all much more than heterosexuals or homosexuals. GET OVER YOURSELVES AND REALIZE THAT BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD, THERE GO YOU!!! GAYS ARE BORN AS SUCH, THEY DO NOT CHOOSE TO BE HOMOSESUAL ANYMORE THAN I CHOSE TO BE HETEROSEXUAL AND I’M ASSUMING THAT YOU ARE HETEROSEXUALS BUT PERHAPS YOU ARE NOT REALLY SURE ABOUT THAT AND SO YOU CHOOSE TO PRESENT YOUR SELVES AS HOMOPHOBES!!!!!

    I could say I hope this Episode of this years show goes on with ALL THE PROBLEMS That Can Come Up. I guess I do… If the show doesn’t happen, then that would show that People Are Wrong To AWARD GAY ACTIVISTS. Yes, including ELTON JOHN. But all I am going to say here right now is… MAY GOD BE WITH THIS YEAR’S SHOW AND THAT “GOD’S WILL Does What God Wants”.
