Last month, Neil Patrick Harris led an all-star cast — including Stephen Colbert, Christina Hendricks, and Jon Cryer — in a staged reading of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Company at NYC’s Lincoln Center. But the four-nights-only show left plenty of ticketless fans clamoring for their chance to see the spectacle – enough, in fact, that the show’s producers decided to film it and bring it to theaters for a limited run starting June 15. In an exclusive interview with EW’s Dave Karger (below), Harris chats about his experience on the show and why co-star Colbert turned out to be a musical-theater natural. And there’s more — head to EW’s Facebook page and “Like” us to see an exclusive video of Harris talking about his upcoming gig hosting this year’s Tony Awards on June 12.
