Neil Patrick Harris won a Tony Award for starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway, but we all know the real star is the spectacular wig design of Mike Potter.

The task of styling these magnificent wigs for the show goes to legendary NY drag queen Perfidia. Listen as Perfidia gives us a behind the scenes tour of what it’s like styling wigs for the show, working with the all the Hedwigs, and did she ever solve Broadway’s biggest mystery- the case of the stolen Hedwig wig.


  1. Looking forward to the touring production. Any idea when they will be in Austin Texas?

  2. Great show with Perfidia! It was fun hearing her stories. I saw Hedwig and the Angry Inch when it was Off-Broadway at the Jane Street Theater in New York City in the late 1990s. That was fun. It would be amazing to see Mx. Justin Vivian Bond in the role of Hedwig! So much great, classic drag on stage in NYC now with Lypsinka and Hedwig and new drag scene in Bushwick! Here’s a fun link.
