It's obvious from the first moments of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" that star Neil Patrick Harris is doing something special.Harris, of course, plays Hedwig, a transgender East German performer who explains her tortured path from Berlin to a mobile home in Kansas to New York.The show has a renovated book by John Cameron Mitchell -- who also played the first Hedwig -- and songs by Stephen Trask that straddle the line between rock 'n' roll and traditional musical theater. A cult off-Broadway hit in 1998, "Hedwig" led to a 2001 feature film and has seemingly been waiting for Harris ever since.It will come as no surprise that while Hall has an understudy, Harris does not.
