Harris exiting Broadway hit 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch'
NEW YORK -- Neil Patrick Harris will leave the hit Broadway show "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and Andrew Rannells will slip into his old wigs.
Producers of the Tony Award-winning show said that Harris will play his final Tony Award-winning performance at the Belasco Theatre on Aug. 17. Rannells will take over Aug. 20.
Rannells earned a Tony nomination as an ever-smiling Mormon missionary in the debut cast of "The Book of Mormon" and also plays Elijah on "Girls."
Now he’ll play a German male transsexual rock singer in a tale of obsession, glam rock and a botched sex-change operation.
