If you missed Darren Criss warbling his way through Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway back in 2015, you're in luck: The New York Times reports that Criss will return to the title role in the production's national tour. He'll play the tour's opening dates in San Francisco and Los Angeles in October and November, before the show moves on to other cities and other actors. San Francisco, coincidentally, is Criss's hometown, which we hope marks the start of a trend with this particular tour. Just imagine: Channing Tatum playing Hedwig in Cullman, Alabama; Bruno Mars playing Hedwig in Honolulu; Mickey Rourke playing Hedwig in Schenectady!
