Commentaires : This production has seen a string of A-list actors done the wig and take on this challenging and highly demanding lead role, making it one of the most-talked about revivals out on Broadway right now!

Hedwig and the Angry Inch was first seen Off Off-Broadway at Westbeth, after which it ran at the Jane Street Theatre for over two years from early 1998. The groundbreaking Obie-winning Off-Broadway smash went on to win multiple awards for its cult film adaptation of the same name. This Broadway revival continues the trend, earning eight 2014 Tony Awards nominations and winning four, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for its glittering (literally) star, Neil Patrick Harris.
Presse : "Shamelessly enjoyable show. ... one of the few unqualified pleasures of this Broadway spring" Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Frisky, unapologetically raunchy fable of love, loss, fury and freedom is flashier on the Great White Way thanks to director Michael Mayer’s gleaming production." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"The success or failure of this 'Hedwig' rests on Harris. In cutoff denim shorts, teetering platforms and gigantic blond hair, he relentlessly prowls the stage, occasionally lunging into the audience for a lap dance or two. But it all feels a little too rehearsed, and Harris doesn’t look entirely comfortable clambering over the bombed-out set. Only when he finally clicks with the material — as on the heartbreaking “Wig in a Box,” about the process of becoming someone else — is the show suddenly worth the effort he’s poured into it." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"Its downtown vibe wouldn't seem to make it a candidate for Broadway, but, under the spirited direction of Michael Mayer – and, pivotally, the grand performance by Harris – it's a blast." Robert Feldberg for The Record

"Neil Patrick Harris kicks it out like crazy as Hedwig, the transgender punk rocker who rages away in the musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” Making his first Broadway appearance in ten years, Harris delivers a lusty, full-throttle performance " Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

"Harris is beyond fabulous, holds nothing back and plays it any way but safe in Michael Mayer's exhilarating production." David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

"The screaming starts when a bespangled Neil Patrick Harris parachutes onstage in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and doesn’t stop until he’s back in his dressing room. That’s the kind of rock-star performance he gives in this spectacular revival." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
