He played a teenage doctor and then Dr. Horrible. He glam-rocked it out as the lead in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch. He serves as the president of the Board of Directors of Hollywood’s Magic Castle. He played a fictional (and extremely high) version of himself in the Harold & Kumar series. He was the main human in the Smurfs movie. He authored Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography. He and his husband have arguably the best Halloween costumes for them and their two kids. He’s done pretty much everything, or so says his blog and playbook from when he was the legendary Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother. And now he’s returning to Pace for the second time this year. That’s right, folks. Neil Patrick Harris will be our Inside the Actors Studio seminar guest on Wednesday, October 29, at 7:00 p.m. at the Schimmel.
