"By shuttling so easily along the continuum of masculinity, from frat-boy stud to dapper showman, he's raised questions about what might be possible for other actors, gay and straight. . . . If more actors were out, if the larger culture felt more like the accepting Utopia Harris glimpsed during Rent, perhaps masculinity might feel like just another performance--something playful, not scary or loaded."

--Emily Nussbaum of New York Magazine, on Neil Patrick Harris
