First Look: Taye Diggs as ‘Hedwig’ in Broadway’s ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’

Broadway vet  Taye Diggs will assume the role of Hedwig on July 22 for a 12-week run, succeeding current star, Darren Criss, who plays his final performance on July 19.

“Hedwig is the role of a lifetime,” Diggs told PEOPLE. “I’m looking forward to being challenged performance-wise on many levels, as well as being humbled by the musical’s social implications. I also like wearing nail polish.”

This marks Diggs first appearance on Broadway since he stepped into the role of Fiyero opposite then-wife Idina Menzel in Wicked in 2004.
