Taye Diggs is Broadway's next "Hedwig" with an angry inch!


NEW YORK---Following speculation, it's been confirmed that stage and screen star Taye Diggs will take over for Darren Criss in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Diggs will assume the role of our favorite internationally ignored song stylist at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre on July 22 for a 12-week engagement. In addition to Criss, the show currently stars Rebecca Naomi Jones, who will continue in the role of Yitzhak. Hedwig will mark Diggs’ return to Broadway after nearly 12 years, when he briefly played the role of Fiyero in Wicked opposite his wife at the time Idina Menzel (the two separated in 2013). [link]
