Hedwig and the Angry Inch to close on Broadway in September

Posted on

Say goodbye to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Broadway. The revival of the iconic rock musical will close the final New York curtain on Sept. 13 at the Belasco Theatre at 3 p.m.

“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,” producer David Binder said in a press release. “Hedwig heralded a historic year of acceptance and celebration across America.”

The titular star in the revival was first played by Neil Patrick Harris, followed by Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, John Cameron Mitchell (the musical’s book writer), Darren Criss, and — most recently — Taye Diggs. By the time the Broadway show closes, it will have completed 506 regular performances and 22 preview shows over its 76-week engagement.

Good news for non-New York fans of the musical: A touring version hits the road starting Oct. 4, 2016 in San Francisco. And on top of that, West End and Australia productions are also in the works.
