Polished Edge: Neil Patrick Harris, a nominee on the 68th Annual Tony Awards on CBS
Q: This is your fourth Broadway show; you’ve had massive TV hits, done film and Web. What domain do you want to master next?
A: I want to work on parenting. That’s the challenging one at the moment. The show is wonderful and structured, but the show doesn’t allow me to put them down to sleep. I see them once I wake up, only for a small period of time. I am regretting that. They are 3 1/2.
Q: One of the best parts of Hedwig is how you ad-lib and get to abuse people who misbehave at the theater. Is it fun?
A: Hedwig has the ability to chastise and she does not mince words. We are still early in the run. I have been playing around with just how ruthless she should be.
Q: What has surprised you about being a parent?
A: I am amazed at the kind of mischief they get into. Their mischief is just seeing what will get them into trouble and what won’t -- once they figure out what the boundaries are. But I have to give utmost credit to (husband) David, who is an extraordinary parent and a great person and I am anxious for him to be able to be nominated for a Tony himself -- in chapters to come. He has sacrificed enough for me.
