Sometimes in order to go six inches forward you have to go five inches back.

And this January, Hedwig And The Angry Inch is taking it all the way back to the nub — er, the beginning!

After amazing runs by Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, and Michael C. Hall, the next electrifying performer to take on the role of Hedwig will be…

The man who literally wrote the book is stepping back into the high heel boots and onto the Broadway stage in the role he originated. He wrote on Facebook:

Neil Patrick Harris Is Saying Goodbye To Hedwig Heels & Fishnets! And THIS Girls Star Is Set To Take His Place!

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

Perez Reviews: Hedwig - On Broadway!

10271495 743657618988164 295816221232460342 n

The bar was exceptionally high for Neil Patrick Harris as the titular Hedwig in the new Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, our favorite musical of all time. Really.

We saw the show 10 times in the '90s and early 2000s in various incarnations. We even had Donovan Leitch perform AS Hedwig at our birthday party a few years back.

We saw John Cameron Mitchell do the part 6 times. He didn't just originate the role and write the book for the musical. John WAS Hedwig. And he was excellence on stage. Every night!

So, like we said, the bar was EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH for Neil Patrick Harris. Especially for us.

And, we weren't convinced at first.

It wasn't until The Origin Of Love that something clicked within us.

This is not just a new production. This is a new show. This is a BROADWAY show with big production values and a big star that delivers a big performance! And we had to stop comparing him to John Cameron Mitchell!

Neil Patrick Harris will win the Tony for his interpretation of Hedwig! Not just because he was so much good will in the theater community and has gracefully and flawlessly hosted the Tony Awards for several years. Neil will win the Tony Award because he DESERVES TO WIN the Tony Award for this performance. He is THAT good! And he is literally on stage the entire show! If he would have failed, so would have this production!

As the show goes on and you forget that a big star is playing the part you get lost in Hedwig's story. Hedwig's gripping story! Hedwig's inspiring story of love and redemption that we can all relate to!

Neil COMMANDS the stage of the Belasco theater!

This is Neil Patrick Harris unlike you've ever seen him before!

This is a fearless performance! A sexy performance! A vulnerable performance! Strong, confident, and it's wickedly fun too!

And he sounds SO GOOD!

Props to NPH's voice coach, Liz Caplan!

And huge huge HUGE props to everyone who turned this production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch into a new show!

This is soooooo different from what played at the Jane Street Theater many moons ago.

The book has been updated by Cameron Mitchell. Wonderfully so.

The arrangements have been updated by composer Stephen Trask. Wonderfully so. Especially the inspired reworking of Sugar Daddy!

The costumes! Oh, have the costumes been updated by Madonna's stylist, Arianne Phillips. We went in thinking there would be just two outfits in the show. Boy were we wrong! So many looks and reveals and quick changes! EPIC costuming!

And there are probably just as many wigs, all done beautifully by Mike Potter.

Michael Mayer gave the show so much razzle dazzle, and it all worked and made sense!

And seeing Hedwig again reminded us what a truly flawless score it has. EVERY song is so good! And the book is JUST AS GOOD!

That's what makes Hedwig and the Angry Inch so great!

We sat there in awe!

Neil Patrick Harris gives his all!

His performance is more physical than John's was. And boy does he work that stage!

Kudos to Spencer Liff for the choreography and "musical staging"!

And we are still just so happy and thrilled that mainstream audiences are getting exposed to this very important and brilliant work!

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is an inspiring story of how difficult life can be, but when we channel that pain and longing into something positive - we can create beauty.

This production is beautiful. And Neil Patrick Harris is beautiful in it!

You will likely see us in the audience over and over again!

Get your tickets NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. The Origin Of Love as done in the production is literally one of the most beautiful and moving moments we have experienced in a musical. Ever!!!!!!!
