Just when you thought you couldn’t more excited for the Neil Patrick Harris starring Broadway revival of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” the folks behind the show announced that they will partner with LGBT youth organization Hetrick-Martin Instutute. The Advocate reports:

The musical will donate a portion from each ticket sale to Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School, a New York City public transfer school where at-risk youth can learn without fear of physical or emotional attacks. According to a press release, the partnership “will also utilize the resources of the production, including representatives from the show meeting with young people in an educational and mentoring capacity, and additional fundraising support.”

“Hedwig” begins previews tomorrow (!) and opens on April 22nd (at the Belasco).
