Neil Patrick Harris Checks Out Toronto’s Fringe Festival because Twitter Told Him To

and it was legen...wait for it

Filming his new movie Downsizing here in Toronto this weekend, Neil Patrick Harris looked to his 25 million Twitter followers for advice on what to do in the city during his downtime,

Toronto’s Fringe Festival was recommended by dozens on Twitter and Kat Sandler, writer and director of Bright Lights invited the actor to her play. The How I Met Your Mother star replied shortly thereafter ready to attend. Sandler told Toronto Life, “It was totally sold out. We had to Mission: Impossible him into the theatre.” Harris was guided in through the theatre’s back door and enjoyed the show without many audience members even noticing the star among them.

Sandler took Harris to True Blue, another Fringe showing the next day and attended Romeo and Juliet Chainsaw Massacre on his own on Sunday.
