Taye Diggs will be Broadway’s sixth Hedwig, following the high-octane runs of Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, OG John Cameron Mitchell, and the latest, Darren Criss. Diggs is obviously no stranger to the theater, but it’s been a while since he’s been on the stage, last appearing in 2005’s Off-Broadway production A Soldier’s Play. Diggs will put on some makeup and turn on the eight-track for 12 weeks starting July 22.
