Harris, Sting among Tony performers

Neil Patrick Harris, Sting, Idina Menzel, Alan Cumming and Sutton Foster – as well as the teaming up of Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight and Fantasia – will perform at the Tony Awards on June 8.

Producers announced a music-heavy lineup that includes all the best new musical nominees – “Aladdin,” “After Midnight,” “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” – and some overlooked ones, including “Bullets Over Broadway,” “Rocky” and “If/Then.” Three revivals – “Les Misérables,” “Violet” and Cumming’s “Cabaret” – will also be featured.

Sting will perform a song from his Broadway-bound musical, “The Last Ship.”

Harris, in the past a winning host, will return to sing a song from his “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” in which he plays a German male transsexual rock singer. He together with a lascivious and edgy Cumming as “Cabaret” emcee may add some spice to the night.

The Tony Awards will be broadcast from Radio City Music Hall on CBS. Hugh Jackman will host.
