The actor will be making his return to Broadway after a 12-year hiatus in the title role of transgendered rock star Hedwig in the Tony award winning musical revival 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 said in an interview with People.

He would go on to hilariously add, “I also like wearing nail polish.”

You can see Taye Diggs and his glittered visage at the Belasco Theatre starting July 22 when he takes over for current Hedwig Darren Criss.
