Darren Criss tweets the first photo of himself in full 'Hedwig' makeup

Posted on

Darren Criss will have some big heels to fill in late April when he takes over as the eponymous transgender diva in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch—the titular role was previously held by both John Cameron Mitchell and Neil Patrick Harris. But based on a recent tweet, he at least has the look down.

On Monday the actor tweeted a photo of himself to show off his shimmery blue eye shadow, bright pink blush, and deep red lipstick.

Criss takes over for the current Hedwig, Mitchell, on April 29 and will play the part till July 19.
