The Star-studded Broadway Production Of Hedwig and the Angry Inch Is To Close Next Month (Sep15) After More Than 500 Performances.
The curtain will come down on the Tony Award-winning show on 13 September (15) with actor Taye Diggs taking the final bow in the lead role.
Producer David Binder says, "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... It has been a privilege to work with our extraordinary leading men... I am so happy that (this) groundbreaking production has introduced Hedwig to a new generation of fans and brought (this) downtown show into the mainstream."
Hedwig and the Angry Inch premiered on the Great White Way in 2014 with Neil Patrick Harris playing the title role, and it went on to win three Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Lead Actor in a Musical for Harris.
Michael C. Hall and Glee's Darren Criss are among the actors who stepped in to take over the role of Hedwig following Harris' departure.
