The Hedwig and the Angry Inch revival that has graced Broadway for the last year and a half is closing next month, Variety reports. The last performance will be September 13, 3 p.m., at the Belasco Theater. “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,” David Binder said in a statement. “Hedwig heralded a historic year of acceptance and celebration across America.” The popular musical, which centers on the story of a transsexual rock star who underwent a botched sex reassignment surgery and vies for closure, won four Tonys in 2014, including Best Revival of a Musical. The production also served as a platform for talented leading men, as Hedwig was played by the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, Darren Criss, and Taye Diggs. Variety notes that the show isn’t going away for good, though: A national tour begins October 4, in San Francisco, so, in a way, those heels are just getting broken in.
