Taye Diggs to star as transsexual in Hedwig and the Angry Inch starting July 22 on Broadway

Taye Diggs is the latest actor to step into the high heels of transgender rocker Hedwig in the smash Broadway revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. He’ll make his Broadway return for the first time since appearing in Wicked in 2004, taking over in the role of Hedwig when Glee star Darren Criss exits the production on July 19. Diggs begins his 12-week run on July 22 at the Belasco Theatre.

Diggs’ Broadway credits include CarouselChicagoWicked, and the original production of Rent. (He reprised his role as Benny in the 2005 film adaptation).
