Neil Patrick Harris AS Hedwig, Complete With Blonde Wig, Custom Heels

Neil Patrick Harris AS Hedwig, Complete With Blonde Wig, Custom Heels

We saw the poster of Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig – a close-up of his face with a little mascara and lipstick — but now we’re getting him in full dress — or full hot pants, courtesy of this photograph by Joan Marcus published in Entertainment Weekly.

The performer stars as an East German transgender rock singer named Hedwig, in the shadow of his former protege, in the first-ever Broadway revival of John Cameron Mitchell and  Stephen Trask’s “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” which opens at the Belasco on April 22. It is now no longer set (as it was originally) in the run-down ballroom of the fleabag Hotel Riverview, but actually set at the Belasco, the most beautiful theater on Broadway.
