  1. Original Star Returns to “Hedwig”

    John Cameron Mitchell is back on Broadway. For eight weeks beginning in January, the actor will reprise his legendary turn as a transgender East German rock goddess suffering from a botched sex change. Mitchell says he has “much larger pumps to fill” after Neil Patrick Harris won a Tony Award in the titular role. Expect less physicality from the 51-year-old thespian, but the same searing comedic honesty that made Hedwig and the Angry Inch a cult favorite when he wrote it 15 years ago.
