hedwig and the angry inch optimistic

Good golly, y’all. I remember the days when talk of Hedwig and the Angry Inch coming to Broadway was but a rumor that warmed the cockles of my campy, cantankerous heart. Last year it finally happened, though, and that has been the best. Neil Patrick Harris was the best; Andrew Rannells was the best; Michael C. Hall was the best; and, throughout it all, Lena Hall has definitely been the best. But now John Cameron Mitchell is making his triumphant return to Hedwig for an eight-week engagement, and there isn’t a grandma’s grab bag of clutchable pearls big enough to contain my emotions, so I’ll just post this still from JCM’s brilliant 2001 film adaptation and leave it at that. It’s a rare instance of restraint, for sure, but I’m wide open with emotion and don’t want to make a mess everywhere.
