Neil Patrick Harris will star in the upcoming Broadway adaptation of Hedwig And The Angry Inch.

In this episode: Before the Academy Awards on Sunday night, we talk about the candidates for Best Original Song (even one that got kicked off the list along the way) and Best Original Score with Melena Ryzik of The New York Times.

Then, hear Australian songwriter Courtney Barnett and her band perform "Avant Gardener" and more in the Soundcheck studio.

And: This spring is shaping up to be a busy one on Broadway, especially for musicals. We talk with New York Post theater columnist Michael Riedel about a couple of the biggies coming our way -- including Hedwig and the Angry Inch, starring Neil Patrick Harris, If/Then, and Bullets Over Broadway.
