Hedwig Review Roundup and 19 Photographs
Time Out NY is positive, calling Harris a "rock star." "As the imperious, spurned, fright-bewigged, sweaty glitterbomb at the heart of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Harris makes Broadway rock harder than it ever has before!"Time Out Review
AM New York is mixed to mostly-positive , I'd say… saying NPH's Hedwig is understandably not yet fully-developed but will improve" and that the show is "a wildly enjoyable production." "...While no one can doubt Harris' fierce theatricality, strong voice and expert handling of the comedy aspects, his Hedwig has yet to come together as a fully-developed, vulnerable character. But given the role's extreme complexity and grueling physical demands, that's more than understandable. Chances are that his performance will improve as the run continues...But as it is, this remains a wildly enjoyable production of one of the most exciting and inventive rock musicals of all time." AM New York Review
The Financial Times seems mixed to positive . He says "the physical production, which includes a set by Julian Crouch centred on a broken-down car, helps keep us engaged when the storytelling sags" but the storytelling "manages to make us think about not just gender-based aspects of love but also the cold war, cheap American pop music, and the price of fame." Praise for NPH in saying "A veteran not only of sitcoms but also of gender-bending stage shows such as Rent and Cabaret, Harris is ideally experienced to deliver Hedwig’s low jokes as well as its rock ’n’ roll kick-outs and tearful ballads." Financial Times Review
NBC New York seems mostly positive . "As with any piece that is essentially a straight monologue by a single person, there are places where "Hedwig" slows down. But "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is still the finest musical you're going to see this year about a transgendered Berliner with a chip on her shoulder, and it only further burnishes the crown on the head of the reigning king, and now queen of Broadway."NBC New York Review
