After Dexter, one might be used to seeing Michael C. Hall’s face splattered with blood. But now, it’s coated in glitter in preparation for his turn as the titular character in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
As Neil Patrick Harris and Andrew Rannells have now done before him, Hall dons glittery eye makeup and lipstick for his turn as the rock star from East Berlin who is left with an “angry inch” after a bungled sex-change operation. Hall pulls the wig down from the shelf and begins performances as the “internationally ignored song stylist” Oct. 16.
Hall most recently appeared on Broadway in the play The Realistic Joneses, but has a history of coming in as a replacement in musicals. He has played both Billy Flynn in Chicago and the Emcee in Cabaret.
