Hedwig Hits Wigstock

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?  In an uncharacteristically charitable move, I will share the good news first.  Wigstock 2.HO was a HUGE success.  While I personally believe the show was stolen by the legendary Lypsinka, one must give credit where credit is due – Neil Patrick Harris slipped back into Hedwig’s pumps effortlessly and put on a fantastic set, totally earning all plaudits he received for his interpretation.  And earlier in the day, he, David and their kids manned the wig cannons and shot wigs out to the capacity crowd – which was super cool.  That said (here comes that bad news), during an appearance on SiriusXM a few days before Wigstock, he pissed off quite a few people with what he felt was the downside of playing Hedwig.  “The limping of the wrists, the cocking of the hip, the tits out and the ass out, and sort of walking with a sway and sort of the overt femininity of the characterization that I had, that was hard to get into my whole body without feeling like I was mocking it initially.  I didn’t want to feel like I was pretending.”  When asked if the transformation made him feel less masculine, NPH said, “for sure”.  At that point, Mrs. NPH (David Burtka) felt compelled to chime in, “I like manly guys.”  Yeah, because when I think of the epitome of masculinity, my mind immediately thinks of Neil Patrick Harris.  Bitch, please.  Be that as it may, I will post Lypsinka’s and Hedwig’s numbers on BillyMasters.com.
