Neil Patrick Harris Will Star in Broadway Production of ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’

America fell back in love with Neil Patrick Harris (well, it’s not like anyone fell out of love with him, really) when he hosted last weekend’s Tony Awards. Now you may have your chance to see him do a little song and dance number live. Harris intends to return to the New York stage once he’s done shooting the final season of How I Met Your Mother, and it looks like he’ll be doing so next Spring in the first Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Harris will be playing the title role, of course. It’s safe to say that the East German transgender pop star will be a much darker, sexier role than we — and Harris — are used to. [via NYT]
