The first picture of Andrew Rannells as Hedwig in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch has been released. The Tony-nominated Girls actor will step into the title role on August 20, taking over from Neil Patrick Harris for an extended eight-week run. The show, a rock musical about a fictional band fronted by a trans singer from Germany, recently won four awards at this year’s Tonys, including Best Revival of a Musical and a Best Actor trophy for Neil Patrick Harris.
