Hedwig and the Angry Inch To Open On Broadway Next Spring With Emmy Winner and Tony Host Neil Patrick Harris
Great news theatre fans. It was just announced today that stage and screen star Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) will return to the Great White Way in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Fresh from his critically acclaimed gig as host of this year's Tony Awards Mr. Harris will play the title character in this cult favorite at a theatre to be announced next Spring. John Cameron Mitchell who starred and wrote the book for the original 1998 Off-Broadway production had this to say about the casting. "Who better to pass the wig to but the finest entertainer of his generation?" Composer Stephen Trask said, "It's like you're putting together a fantasy rock band and Paul McCartney agrees to play bass." I never got a chance to see the original production so I for one can't wait to see it. Plus Neil Patrick Harris I am sure will be brilliant as always. Until next time theatre fans.
