Neil Patrick Harris yells at fan during 'Hedwig' performance

Neil Patrick Harris had the perfect response to an enamored fan who interrupted a recent performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

“I love you, Neil!” a female admirer yelled out during the Broadway show, according to Page Six. In character, as the titular transgender East German punk, Harris responded: “I’m doing something up here, ­motherf–ker!”

Which, of course, was a much friendlier reaction than Hugh Jackman had that one time an audience member’s cell phone went off — twice — during his Broadway performance:

Harris’ response was reportedly met with adoring applause.
