"It takes a certain amount of guts to take on the role of Hedwig. The title character in John Cameron Mitchell’s musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” requires an actor capable of not just being equal parts fearless, funny and vulnerable, he (or she) has to pretty much own the stage for the entire 100 minutes."
I always knew it was him.
“If you look at his television work, you could think he was strange and dark to be attracted to those roles. But once you watch him, you realize it’s a measure of his intelligence and compassion. He’s just a very understanding person, and he shows such an ease in playing an extreme point of view. We wanted someone who could be lightning-quick and deep and dark, but not feel the need to push those things” ~ Will Eno, director, The Realistic Joneses
That´s Neil Patrick Harris (who just has married his longtime partner and is father of two adorable kids as I learned) in the role of Hedwig. He won a Tony for his role and the show must be very entertaining.
Thats a turn around for Michael C. Hall and will definitely confuse some fans. I love it!!!

"In the midst of the Civil War, President Lincoln went to Gettysburg, the place of America’s greatest suffering, to offer his "few appropriate remarks" at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. In 272 words he redefined the meaning of the war, explained to a wounded nation why the bloodletting must continue—what was worth fighting and dying for. "The Gettysburg Address" investigates the five extant copies of Lincoln’s famous speech, separating fact from fiction along the way. Lincoln’s greater journey to Gettysburg is chronicled, from his early anti-slavery sentiments as a poor farmer’s son to his rousing orations as one of America’s greatest leaders. In a spirit not dissimilar to Lincoln’s transcending proposition of rebirth at Gettysburg, the film investigates for the first time the speech’s many cultural and historical significances, both then and now. Featuring interviews with the country’s leading historians, politicians, Civil Rights leaders, Women’s Rights … Written by Rising Picture Company “
