How I’m going to spend some of my hiatus from “How I Met Your Mother”

NeilpatrickNow we know how Neil Patrick Harris is going to spend at least some of his summer. The “How I Met Your Mother” star will make his stage directing debut with what’s billed as a “private premiere” rendition of Amanda Rogers’ “I Am Grock” on July 17 at the El Portal Theater in North Hollywood.

Play revolves around “a monumental moment in the life of Phoebe Broman, a family therapist, mother and author. Her successful new book promoting raw, uncensored honesty within families has netted her an interview on a national news broadcast. However, things go awry when her entire extended family shows up at her front door an hour before the interview. Phoebe is left with no choice but to heal her own family before the newswoman and cameras arrive.”

Sounds like Harris out to have fun with it, given the entirely overblown tabloid circus he faced a few months back over questions of his sexuality. I mean, who really cares? In this day and age? He’s a hoot as the lascivious Barney on CBS’ “How I Met Your to Mother” — that’s really all we need to know. Harris also is no stranger to the footlights, having appeared on Broadway in “Assassins,” “Proof” and “Cabaret.”
