See Taye Diggs for first time as Hedwig!
Ever since Taye Diggs was announced as the next Hedwig in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch, I’ve been excited to see how he would look at the transgender punk rocker.
Well, here he is!
Taye tells People.com: “Hedwig is the role of a lifetime. I’m looking forward to being challenged performance-wise on many levels, as well as being humbled by the musical’s social implications.’
He adds: ‘I also like wearing nail polish.’
Taye takes over for Darren Criss in the role next month and is the latest in a parade of starts who have headlined in the show.
Other leads have been Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall and orginator John Cameron Mitchell.
