Back in June it was revealed Neil Patrick Harris has signed up for the first proper Broadway staging of John Cameron Mitchell’s awesome Hedwig And The Angry Inch. Now we get our first look at him in the role with the glittery poster above.
Hedwig is about an East German immigrant to the US, whose botched sex change operation leaves her with the titular ‘angry inch’. After her relationship with a GI breaks down, she starts to date young hottie Tommy Gnosis, who leaves her behind when he takes her music and becomes a rock star.
The new production is set to premiere April 22nd, 2014. While the show started off-Broadway in 1998, this will be the first time it’s been staged in New York’s main theatre district.
Tickets go on sale soon – you can follow the show on Twitter @HedwigOnBway.
