All things that glitter aren't gold. Sometimes, they're sexually suggestive with running mascara. Example A: Neil Patrick Harris as Hedwig, the German transgendered singer with one inch of flesh left over from a botched reassignment surgery.

A glittery NPH stares back at us from the first poster of the 2014 Broadway revival of John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The story follows the life of Hedwig, who, after moving from Germany to Kansas, forms a rock band of outsiders and pursues her Platonic half. There's love, there's loss, and plenty of glittery drama to occupy vodka-cran infused conversations at a drag show for weeks. No doubt NPH will do Mitchell's cult character justice (even with his tongue wagging about like Miley's).

Tickets go on sale "soon," according to Harris' Twitter. The legend, however, is already alive and well.
