We thought Hedwig and the Angry Inch star Neil Patrick Harris was the only transgender German rock goddess on Broadway (at least until Andrew Rannells takes over on August 20), but we were so wrong! Backstage in his dressing room, the Tony winner took a seriously adorable selfie with a mini Hedwig doll by DoubleSupaFantastico. The doll is the spitting image of Harris as Hedwig, down to the studded cuffs, the fishnets and the glittering makeup. Hey, can you guys sell these at the merch stand? And while you’re at it, can you sell the lipstick, eyeshadow and wigs? Check out this Hot Shot of Hedwig and Mini-Hedwig, then see Harris in the hit rock musical through August 17!
