Taye Diggs is returning to Broadway in a way you’ve never seen him before.
He’s set to star as the lead Hedwig in the Broadway revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
“Hedwig is the role of a lifetime. I’m looking forward to being challenged performance-wise on many levels, as well as being humbled by the musical’s social implications,” Diggs says in the new issue of PEOPLE, adding: “I also like wearing nail polish.”
We like wearing nail polish too.
Taye begins his 12-week run as Hedwig – a transgender rock artist who sings about her botched surgery – in NYC on July 22nd, replacing Glee star Darren Criss. It’ll be Taye’s first Broadway role since leaving Wicked in 2004.
