Right now, all we want is for spring to arrive, and not just because it'll bring warmer weather (and, hopefully, an end to all these snowstorms). No, spring is also the time of year when New York's arts-and-culture scene really heats up, with plenty of parties, concerts, talks and Broadway shows to keep you entertained. And this week, Time Out is bringing you all of that—and more!—in our Spring Preview issue.

About those Broadway shows: The cover star of the issue is none other than Neil Patrick Harris, who'll be starring on Broadway in a new production of John Cameron Mitchell's gender-bending musical, Hedwig and the Angry Inch. "It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—[to play] that overt a character on a Broadway stage," says the actor. "And it’s not pretty. It’s nasty and rugged and dangerous, and I think that’s exciting for Broadway."
