Here’s Taye Diggs as ‘Hedwig’
Broadway vet 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.”
