Neil Patrick Harris Talks Heels & Glitter at Broadway Opening of ‘Hedwig’
'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' tells the story of a fictional rock band fronted by an East German transgender singer named Hedwig.
"Well, Hedwig expects everyone to love her and worship her because she’s infinitely talented and no one acknowledges it, but they all should," Neil Patrick Harris says about the character. "So coming from that point of view, everything is fantastic for her and if someone doesn’t like her, she’ll cut ‘em," he jokes.
About his over-the-top wardrobe, Neil says the heels are "weirdly fun" and automatically change his whole stature on stage. He also revealed that since the play is plentiful with glitter, this means the sparkle dust also manages to make its way home, where he lives with his husband David Burtka and 3-year-old twins. “I try to keep the glitter away from them — they’re right at the age where they think more is better.”
