Sweet Tits of Clay this is a brilliant idea!!
Neil Patrick Harris won a Tony Award for his portrayal of a transgender rocker in Hedwig and the Angry Inch — prompting an extension of the show's broadway run!
While Barney Stinson was legen - wait for it - dary in ferosh heels and full female garb, the producers needed to find a replacement for the show's new schedule.
Cue Girls star Andrew Rannells aka gay Elijah!
Andrew is no stranger to the Great White Way — in fact, he was Tony-nominated for the role of Elder Price in the original Broadway cast of The Book of Mormon!
This fab actor will take over for NPH starting Sunday, August 20 for a limited eight-week engagement!
And talk about an easy transition…Andrew played Hedwig in a 2001 production in Austin!
We're sad to see Neil go, but wish the new lady from East Berlin good luck!!
