Neil Patrick Harris is returning to the stage - and not to hand out awards.

The four-time Tony Award host and former Doogie Howser, M.D is to star on Broadway in the spring as the gender-bent rock chanteuse at the centre of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the cult musical that was made into a cult movie.

The rest of the creative team members, cast, dates and the theatre will be announced later.

Written by John Cameron Mitchell and composer Stephen Trask, the show was an unlikely hit fashioned out of a strange story: a tale of obsession, glam rock, a botched sex-change operation and a quest for identity.
