Lookingglass Theatre ensemble member Tony Hernandez, currently appearing in “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip, had an unusual bit of audience participation on Thursday night, when Neil Patrick Harris took to his shoulders.

According to the risk-loving Hernandez, no such guest has stood on his shoulders before as he walked the wire. Hernandez performed a similar routine in the Lookingglass production of “Hephaestus” in Chicago in 2008. Harris was last on a high wire when hosting the televised Tonys in June. Hernandez sent us the above photo, and said of Harris, “I'm hoping maybe he will want to add this to his next Tony Award appearance.”
