We didn't think anyone could possible take the place of the almighty force that is Neil Patrick Harris in his epic Tony Award-winning role as Hedwig in "Hedwig in the Angry Inch." Then we saw this.
Move over, NPH. You're looking at a dolled-up Andrew Rannells, who you may recognize as Elijah from HBO's "Girls," or Elder Price from "The Book of Mormon." And glory be, the man looks good in glitter. We were worried that no mere mortal could match Harris' portrayal of the East German transgender rock star, but judging from that fierce glare, Rannells is not messing around.
We can't wait to see what Harris' successor will bring to the iconic role.
Harris' last appearance in the Broadway version of John Cameron Mitchell's original 1998 musical is scheduled for August 17 and Rannells is up August 20. Get your tickets here.
