Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) makes his long-awaited return to Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask’s landmark American musical, directed by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). Brilliantly innovative, heartbreaking, and wickedly funny, Hedwig has inspired a generation. The show was called “the Best Rock Musical Ever” by Rolling Stone and "groundbreaking and undoubtedly ahead of its time" by Entertainment Weekly. Neil Patrick Harris plays "internationally ignored song stylist" Hedwig Robinson. Hedwig brings her fourth-wall-smashing saga to Broadway's Belasco Theatre to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and her "angry inch."
Hedwig is Neil Patrick Harris’ first appearance on Broadway since he starred as The Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald in the 2004 Tony-winning revival of Assassins. His other Broadway credits include Proof and Cabaret. He has been honored with four Emmy Awards: three for his acclaimed hosting of the Tony Awards and another for his guest-starring role on Glee.
