After a wildly successful 18-month run, Hedwig and the Angry Inch will say goodbye to Broadway’s Belasco Theatre on September 13 with Taye Diggs in the title role.
“When we announced our limited 16-week Broadway engagement of Hedwig, never in my wildest dreams did I think it would run for a year and a half,” lead producer David Binder said in a press release. “Hedwig heralded a historic year of acceptance and celebration across America.”
Broadway.com adds a national tour of Hedwig is scheduled to start in San Francisco on October 4, 2016, with productions also in the works for the West End and Australia.
Neil Patrick Harris won a 2014 Tony for his performance as the fictional trans glam rocker. Since then, Hedwig has also been headlined by Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, co-creator John Cameron Mitchell and Darren Criss.
