Michael Desmond/CBS(NEW YORK) -- After winning a Tony Award for his portrayal of a transgender glam rock singer in the Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Neil Patrick Harris is set to leave the production. So what's next for the actor?

"Hopefully, some much needed rest. I'm ready for a little bit of downtime," he told People magazine.

Harris, who lost 20 pounds to play Hedwig, says he's also looking forward to eating big meals again. "After August, I'll be all up in waffles," he quipped.

Harris is leaving the production on Aug. 17. He will be replaced by Girls actor Andrew Rannells.
