Oh em gee.
Holy crap. I think… I think this is gonna be good, guys. I think we’re gonna be okay.
I’m a long long long time fan of Hedwig, so when I first heard it was hitting Broadway without John Cameron Mitchell as Hedwig I cried myself to sleep. But this one photo has assuaged my fears a bit. Hedwig’s got a fighting chance after all.
The actor has undergone a radical transformation for the role, as you can see in the above photo. “I’ve lost 20 pounds,” he says, “I’m in the craziest couture outfits, and I’ve got all this makeup on. But they made me custom heels, so at least those fit well.”
Previews for Hedwig and the Angry Inch start tonight at the Belasco Theatre and the show opens on April 22.
Someone take me to this, please.
