Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall Perform 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' at the Tonys: VIDEO


Neil Patrick Harris and his co-star Lena Hall performed a number from Hedwig and the Angry Inch at tonight's Tony Awards.

The segment was introduced by RuPaul, a statement not lost on those familiar with his recent controversial statements with regard to certain words.

The number, "Sugar Daddy" took Harris into the audience to flirt with Orlando Bloom, Samuel L. Jackson, Sting, Kevin Bacon, and his husband David Burtka (above), on whom he planted a passionate kiss.

  1. Out here in the colonies, this type of thing looks quite peculiar. Interesting, but I don't really think its for me.

  2. Awww, this is cute! But I was expecting, and prefer, the original country and western version...

  4. Great performance in what seemed like an otherwise lackluster awards show. NPH brightens up everything. I have to admit to cringing a bit seeing this great guy dressed up like that. It will be good when he ends his Hedwig run in July and he gets back to more normal roles.

  5. Shame so many negative buzzes about NPH playing a role ((

    I thought this was just brilliant

  6. Amazeballs! Love the original version/s but the energy NPH throws into this is wonderful to behold!

  7. Dear, Normal is just a dryer setting...

  8. So happy for NPH, JCM & ST tonight. So wonderful that Hedwig is now known to more people. Maybe it's finally time for Phil Collins' people to pay attention :)

  9. Loved it - can't wait to go to NYC and see it in person

  13. Remember last year when the conservatives complained about having Kinky Boots performing ... cant wait until tomorrow to hear them crying about what was forced upon their children !! LOL

  14. Um yeah. Maybe Origin of Love would be a better ambassador to get those that have never seen Hedwig to see the play or movie.

  15. The look on David's face (the look of pure love and adoration) is just precious....

    Loved this performance, and wish I could see it live on stage!

  16. Since Towleroad's original clip was pulled...the performance can be seen @

  17. A remember when RuPaul was the hero of "the fringe" now he's a big ol' star and those he once used to champion are now beneath his notice except for his contempt.

    That's a really nasty self evolution.

  18. Powerhouse performance! The energy NPH unleashes onstage is simply amazing.

  19. Another jealous racist hating on RuPaul. And this NPH was uninspired. I saw Anthony Rapp kill it once and have never been the same.

  20. I love the people harping on RuPaul but ignore the white old school trans activists who say the same things.

    Clickbait journalism wins... not.

  21. Re Rupaul EXACTLY. Have any of these white trans academic lesbians come after NPH for playing a trans role???????!!!!!!!????

    Yeah. Exactly.

  22. Oh Doogie, how you've changed.

  23. NPH completely stole an other wise boring, disconnected show. I thought he was amazing and I love that he made this song his own and flirted with the stars and kissed his husband. It was all very fantastic! So glad he won. I love him.

  24. NPH is such an amazing talent - and always has been.
