Neil Patrick Harris Is Returning to Broadway

By: / June 18, 2013

Now this should come as no surprise to the handful of people who watched the Tony Awards last week: Neil Patrick Harris will return to the Great White Way in 2014 for a brand-new production of Hediwg and the Angry Inch, the New York Times reported Monday. He’ll play the titular character (Hedwig, not the Angry Inch).

In a statement, the Emmy-winning actor said:

I am simultaneously ecstatic and terrified to be stepping into Hedwig’s heels. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime role and I can’t wait to begin the journey.

Hedwig is expected to debut sometime in the Spring.
