Behind The Scenes Of HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH With Neil Patrick Harris & CompanyAcclaimed cult rock musical HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH is headed to Broadway for the very first time and its newly crowned titular headliner Neil Patrick Harris along with the composer and lyricist behind the score, Stephen Trask, as well as co-star Lena Hall (who plays Yitzhak), participate in a new behind the scenes featurette that is now available to view.

"We weren't allowed on Broadway the first time around!" Trask humorously shares in the new discussion-based preview.

Of note, the premiere Broadway production of HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH is currently in rehearsals with Neil Patrick Harris set to take on the title role under the direction of Michael Mayer. Previews begin March 29, with an opening set for April 22.

The official description of HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH is as follows: "Neil Patrick Harris makes his long-awaited return to Broadway in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's landmark American musical, directed by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). Heartbreaking, innovative, and wickedly funny, Hedwig has inspired a generation. The show was called "the Best Rock Musical Ever" by Rolling Stone and "the most exciting rock score written for the theatre since, oh, ever," by Time Magazine. Hedwig is Neil Patrick Harris' first appearance on Broadway since he starred as The Balladeer/Lee Harvey Oswald in the 2004 Tony-winning revival of Assassins. His other Broadway credits include Proof and Cabaret. He has been honored with four Emmy Awards."
