'GMA' Goes Behind-the-Scenes of 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' with Neil Patrick Harris: VIDEO


GMA talks with composer Stephen Trask and creator and originator John Cameron Mitchell, actress Lena Hall, and Neil Patrick Harris about the Broadway revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch which opens this month

Harris says he's becoming "manorexic" in watching his weight over the transformation but says what gives him the most enjoyment is seeing the "journey" taken by audience members during the production:

"For me, it's fun to play Hedwig and start the show with a lot of people kind of quizzically staring at me and thinking it's for shock value and by the end feeling like they're united with her."

  1. He's amazing in the show.
    How many Comment Trolls will instantly say how "over rated" he is or how he's "outstayed his welcome" or any number of cunty comments?
    Go see 'HEDWIG!'

  6. Marcus, I am a huge fan of JCM, but Mr. Harris did a great job!

  7. @JIMMYD
    As I have said I am tired of him. For me he is a attention-seeking guy who constantly needs everyone's attention towards him. Why is it, because someone has different opinions than you, we will all be called trolls? FYI I used to really like. I was a big fan, but not anymore. For me he has become a guy who is only in love with himself and it is not attractive.

  9. Saw it at the Jane St Theatre with JC Mitchell and loved it but I can't wait to see what NPH does with the role and how they adapted it for a larger space. One of the best scores ever.

  11. All I kept thinking was how old John and Stephen looked, Stephen is unrecognizable, but then Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the movie, debuted 14 years ago. Hard to believe it was that long.

  12. @NN:


    So do most other people. Why the hell do I need to be subjected to yours?

  13. I love the movie and this might be worth a Broadway visit.

  15. Once again the bitter trolls have their nails out and scratching on anoher gay celebrity. Yesterday it was Robin Roberts, today NPH, tomorrow I'm sure they'll b*tch about Anderson Cooper once again. Like clockwork, some guys here are just so miserable.

  16. Love love love this stage musical and film adaptation... and I would LOVE to see NPH's spin on it! Now, I just need to book a flight from the West Coast. Love me some Hedwig!
