Wow. I am poor so I have not had a chance to see Neil Patrick Harris play the beautiful Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway. But if last night’s performance and win for both he and Lena Hall is any indication, this is NOT a show to be missed. In character, the company performed ‘Sugar Daddy’ and even my Mom, who had no previous experience with Hedwig, was enthralled. It was magic.
During the performance of Sugar Daddy, my Mom asked my sister and I about Hedwig and asked ‘Now, is that the young lady who won earlier?’ and we both said ‘That’s Neil Patrick Harris!!’. She was shocked! I didn’t want the performance to end. I cannot wait till the cast soundtrack is released. Congrats to Hedwig.
