Reviews

Praise for the Broadway production of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH:
Harris is beyond fabulous, holds nothing back and plays it anyway but safe in Michael Mayer s exhilarating production . . . The beauty of Mitchell and Trask s show is that it takes the strangest of bedfellows camp, punk and pathos and blends them into something unexpectedly poignant. David Rooney, "The Hollywood Reporter"
Neil Patrick Harris simply crushes it . . . the songs Wicked Little Town, Origin of Love and Wig in a Box deserve to be on iPods everywhere. Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
Mr. Harris is in full command of who he is and, most excitingly, what he has become with this performance. That s a bona fide Broadway star, the kind who can rule an audience with the blink of a sequined eyelid . . . Electrically tuneful and furiously funny . . . an unqualified pleasure. Hedwig is a shamelessly enjoyable show. Ben Brantley, "The New York Times"
For all the cleverness of the book and the pathos of Hedwig the character, this is a true rock concert . . . Harris s bravura performance manages to integrate about 30 years of rock musical styles . . . a spectacular revival. Marilyn Stasio, "Variety"
[In] John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask s brilliant rock musical . . . Harris offers up a bravura, frequently thrilling, deeply committed, self-pushing performance . . .
Chris Jones, "Chicago Tribune"
Dynamite! John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask s frisky, raucous musical survives and thrives. Joe Dziemianowicz, "Daily News"
Furiously entertaining with a heartwarming message. Jesse Green, "New York "magazine
Makes Broadway rock harder than ever before . . . Stephen Trask s glam-rock tunes still induce euphoria. David Cote," TimeOut New York"
. . . Hedwig's tragicomic essence remains the same, and Harris, under Michael Mayer's razor-sharp direction, serves it with a blazingly entertaining and ultimately moving performance.
Elysa Gardner, " USA Today""
