Michael C. Hall will take over as Hedwig in 'Angry Inch'
Dexter will be your next Hedwig. Michael C. Hall is set to take over for Andrew Rannells in the Tony Award-winning production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, EW has confirmed. Hall will begin his run Oct. 16 and will leave the show in January. Hall recently appeared on Broadway in the play The Realistic Jones, but he is a veteran of taking over roles in storied Broadway musicals, making turns as Billy Flynn in Chicago and the Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret. The latter role proves he’s also used to copious amounts of makeup.
Girls star Rannells made his debut as the titular transgender rocker from East Berlin in August after Neil Patrick Harris, who won a Tony for his work, departed the show. Lena Hall—another Tony winner, who plays Hedwig’s husband, Yitzhak—will remain in the production alongside Michael C. Hall.
