NEW YORK, July 13 (UPI) -- During a performance of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Thursday in New York, Neil Patrick Harris spat water at a woman in the audience.

There's a moment each night as part of his role as Hedwig that Harris spits water out at the audience, but during this particular performance he seemed a little irritated with a woman in the third row, a witness said.

He "leaned down into the audience and asked a woman, 'Are you drunk?' She waved her arms in the air and everyone assumed it was part of the act. Neil then berated her for taking photos, telling the audience she was sitting in seat 3A. He then sniffed, 'I hate you,' and turned on his high heels," the witness told Page Six.

"He spat the water straight at the woman," the source said. "It was all a bit frosty and awkward. His anger was spectacular, especially the 'I hate you' bit. The audience went into a stunned silence. You could cut the atmosphere with a knife!"

"There is always an element of audience interaction in each show, and it is all in character," a representative for the show said.
