Meet Andrew Rannells, the New Queen of Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Rannells, Lena Hall, John Cameron Mitchell, and Stephen Trask helped welcome the star to the Tony-winning revival.

The Book of Mormon star Andrew Rannells has a daunting task ahead of him: He steps into the six-inch heels of Hedwig in Broadway's Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch beginning August 20. But for Rannells and his colleagues at the Belasco Theatre, it's no sweat. At a media day ahead of Rannells' arrival, the Tony nominee, joined by Tony-winning costar Lena Hall and the musical's authors John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, discussed why taking over for Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris was a no-brainer.
