Neil Patrick Harris will be back for his fourth turn as host of the Tony Awards when the 67th annual ceremony filled with live performances is broadcast on CBS at 8-11 tonight. The pre-show, red-carpet feed from NY1 News will be streamed live starting at 6 p.m. at www.tonyawards.com,

Among the contenders for best actor and actress in a musical are Pittsburgh's Billy Porter ("Kinky Boots") and fellow Carnegie Mellon alum Patina Miller ("Pippin"). Mr. Harris hosted in 2009, '11 and '12, and will produce again after sharing an Emmy Award last year when the Tonys telecast won for Outstanding Special Class Program. The ceremony returns to Radio City Music Hall after a two-year absence.
