First Look: Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig (and the Angry Inch)


Neil Patrick Harris is coming to Broadway in April in John Cameron Mitchell's musical about a rock and roll band fronted by a trans singer, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and producers released the first image of NPH in character today.

Said Harris in June: "I am simultaneously ecstatic and terrified to be stepping into Hedwig's heels. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime role and I can't wait to begin the journey."

    The movie was good, but sat in the second row and saw it live in the west village on the last night of its run. Must have been 12 or 15 years ago?? It was great.

    The cisphobia and homophobia of this website is shocking.

    Hedwig is not trans. Hedwig is a gay man who had a botched penis amputation in order to marry the man he loved.

    MaryM, you’ve been posting some seriously crazy rants all over this site lately. Hedwig’s gender is not so simple. And if you watched the movie/musical, you’d understand that. Cisphobia is something in your imagination. Or you made it up because you hate transgender people and are self-loathing. The only homophobia I see in this thread is coming from you.
