Neil Patrick Harris Gets Hung at Sardi's
By Brandon Voss
Wrapping up his final week in Broadway's Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Harris made a special appearance at Sardi's, where his caricature was finally added to the eatery's estimable walls of fame.
An intimate group—including Harris's fiancé, David Burtka—gathered Friday at the iconic theater district restaurant to see the caricature's unveiling.
"I couldn't be more proud of you today @ActuallyNPH you got your face up @sardisnyc Your legend lives on!" Burtka posted on Twitter.
Harris won the Tony for Best Actor in a Musical for his role as Hedwig, a fictional East German singer and "slip of a girly boy" living as a female after botched gender-reassignment surgery.
Harris played his last performance Sunday evening. Girls star Andrew Rannells, a Tony nominee for The Book of Mormon, will take over the role Wednesday, Aug. 20, for a limited eight-week run.
The Broadway premiere of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's 1998 cult rock musical, which won the Tony for Best Revival of a Musical, opened April 22 at the Belasco Theatre and recently recouped its investment. The original cast recording is now available.
