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:

If there’s anyone we'd like to see make an Inch into something bigger, it’s Neil Patrick Harris!
As we reported last month, the Emmy Award-winning actor will be taking his talents back to Broadway to star in next year’s production of one of our personal faves, Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
So how does NPH plan to prep for the all the AH-mazing singing/dancing/gender bending the show requires? He said this weekend at the premiere of his new movie, The Smurfs 2:

And it looks intense!
Directed by John Cameron Mitchell, who we absolutely love, Rabbit Hole stars Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, as well as Sandra Oh and Dianne Weist.
The drama is based on the Broadway play with the same name and focuses on a successful suburban couple, played by Nicole and Aaron, and how they deal with the accidental death of their young son.
The film is already getting Oscar buzz, especially for Nicole and Kidman.
We guarantee that this film will make us cry, but we're still excited to see it!

The hit off-Broadway musical and cult classic Hedwig and the Angry Inch is going to take on Broadway with writer John Cameron Mitchell reprising the role of Hedwig!
"Hedwig is ageless. But I'm almost 47, which means I'm at the gym every day, trying to get my old body back, my paunch down and my stamina up. I haven't acted since I did the movie.
"The role is so hard and so challenging that it made me give up acting and concentrate on writing and directing. It's like Hamlet. Except that Hamlet doesn't have to sing 15 great songs. In a dress."
The revival won't be the same as the first with the original team thinking up new ways to fashion the show on Broadway, including a potential storyline that has Hedwig playing a one-night only show at a Broadway house.
Mitchell also added about his character:
"There's no questions that Lady GaGa and Hedwig are from the same clan."
