The Next Star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch Is
Leslie Mann posted a photo of herself backstage at a performance of Hedwig and joked that she'll be the next to don the iconic wig
John Cameron Mitchell originated the role, and Neil Patrick Harris and Andrew Rannells are among those who have stepped into the platform shoes of the title character in the Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
That’s Mitchell, 51, partially in costume, posing with Mann, 43, who joked on Instagram about becoming the next Hedwig after attending a performance of the show with her husband, Judd Apatow, and their daughters at New York City’s Belasco Theater on Saturday. Mitchell returned to the role in January.
This performance was the last by Lena Hall, who has played Hedwig’s husband, Yitzhak, since Harris took on the role in March 2014. Among those in attendance to see Hall off were Harris, Mitchell, Rannells, Michael C. Hall (who played the character from October 2014 to January 2015) and Criss, who dons the wig on Broadway later this month.
