Taye Diggs Will Be The Next Star Of “Hedwig And The Angry Inch”!

Taye Diggs will take on the title role in “Hedwig And The Angry Inch” on Broadway this summer when Darren Criss leaves the production. Diggs’ 12-week run as the musical’s transgender star will begin July 22, and it will be his first time on Broadway since starring in “Wicked” back in 2004. Before his TV and film star days, the talented Diggs was a theatre star, performing in shows like “The Wild Party,” “Chicago,” and “Rent” (where he experienced the ultimate musical theatre meet-cute with his now ex-wife Idina Menzel). He’ll be the sixth actor to take on the role in this current production of “Hedwig,” and I can’t wait to see what he brings to the role — not to mention the fact that there is something undeniably hot about him rocking those fishnets and heels.
