John Cameron Mitchell
for the win!
In a weird twist of fate, the co-creator of Hedwig and the
Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell, was not eligible for a Tony Award last year
when the Broadway debut of the show was up for Best Revival. Since then, the
star himself has reprised the role of the East German transgender rocker -- following
Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, and Michael C. Hall -- in a return to the
role that he once played Off Broadway and later in the film adaptation. He has
finally recognized this year with a Special Tony Award.
