Taye Diggs is officially Hedwig.
People magazine revealed the first photo of Diggs decked out in glittering makeup to portray German singer Hedwig for Broadway's "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" Wednesday. The official Hedwig on Broadway account later shared the photo on Instagram.
Diggs begins his 12-week Broadway stint July 22 at the Belasco Theatre. This is not his first time on stage, however. He previously appeared in Broadway productions of "Wicked," "Rent" and "Chicago." That resume helped land him the role.
“Taye is fantastic -- he has theater cred, he has pop culture cred, he can sing, he can act, he can dance, he’s smart and he’s sexy,” the show’s lead producer, David Binder, told the New York Times in May. “That’s why we cast him.”
