Reviews are pouring in for this weekend’s directorial debut of NM’s Own Neil Patrick Harris. NPH took his very own production of RENT to the Hollywood Bowl with a mixed bag of talents and we’re hearing he churned out a performance worthy of the original.
From his ABQ roots performing at Musical Theatre Southwest straight through to his Emmy nominated run on the CBS hit series How I Met Your Mother Harris holds steady as on of NM’s brightest stars.
Besides his directorial duties, dogooding and his t.v. gig NPH will be back on the big-screen in 2011 (in 3D no less) when he reprises his stint in the Harold & Kumar movie series in A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas!
Also in 2011 he lends his zexy voice to the 3D animated film Smurfs and next month he will haunt the lives of evil doers as the voice of The Amazing Spiderman in the video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.
If you’re going to find yourself in the Los Angeles area in the near future and you want to spend a magical night with NM’s Own Neil Patrick Harris, there’s still time to bid on a dinner for four at the famed Hollywood Magic Castle where you will be joined by NPH himself.
Current bidding stands at $2,500 with proceeds to benefit Project Angel Food, whose mission is “to nourish the body and spirit of men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses. Volunteers and staff cook and deliver free and nutritious meals prepared with love throughout Los Angeles County, acting out of a sense of urgency because hunger and illness do not wait.”
That may seem a little pricey being that it is at the high-end for average monthly income of most employed New Mexicans – but we’re sure NPH will get an even heftier haul from someone with beaucoup disposable cash and it’s so good to see our home boy giving back here, there and everywhere he can!
A wretched fire tore through New Mexico’s Own Musical Theatre Southwest last month. The Theatre’s buildings and all that was housed therein have been deemed a total loss.
Among the hundreds nay thousands of people who’ve worked and/or watched works performed there whom were devastated but not destroyed by the destruction is one of New Mexico’s favorite, most talented, and successful sons.
Our beloved Neil Patrick Harris and the entire Q based Harris family are stepping-up. Before hitting it big as the cutest lil’ doc on the block as genius Doogie Howser, NPH took part in the Musical Theatre Southwest production of Peter Pan in the 1980′s.
“It played a part in his progress into the big Hollywood world, and it’s just been a great little theater company here for 50 years…We will step up and help; we want to help,” his brother Brian Harris said.
Details of the Harris family assistance coming to the Theatre to follow!

Our locally televised post-Oscar coverage decided to tell us which 4 Oscar winners since 1902 have eventually come to live in or visit NM.
We’ll give you the scoop on present day New Mexico connections:
Right out of the gate NM’s Own NPH high-kicked-off the show. As predicted Jeff Bridges and Ryan Bingham each picked-up an Oscar for their contributions to NM film Crazy Heart.
Nominated film A Single Man has New Mexico roots behind the lens as director Tom Ford is a current resident. Precious‘ NM connection too is through it’s nominated director. Lee Daniels shot his 2008 film Tenessee in part here.
Oscar contender A Serious Man was the most recent Coen Bros release. It was just two years ago that the Bros won Best Picture with New Mexico’s No Country for Old Men. Joel and Ethan are currently at work on their adaptation of the Carles Portis Novel True Grit shooting right here with last night’s nom Matt Damon and other veteran NM actors.
The Academy’s beloved George Clooney didn’t take home a new statue and his NM film, Goats did not get any mentions nor did Crazy Heart’s Maggie Gyllenhaal’s bro. Jake & company’s Oscar worthy turn in NM’s Brothers was snubbed all together.
This year’s Best Picture winner didn’t make to New Mexico as recollected and jeered about between co-star Anthony Mackie and his interviewer here.
We’ll likely catch Bigelow and Mackie (if he’s lucky) shooting in our neck of the woods on the flip side…
p.s. KOAT did air a noteworthy look at NM’s Avatar connection though it’s ill~accessible on their website.
