Playing Michael C. Hall to Play 'Hedwig'

Dexter and Six Feet Under star Michael C. Hall will step into the platform boots of Neil Patrick Harris. Neil won a Tony for his role as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and now Michael will take on the role on Broadway.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a fictional rock band fronted by an East German transgender singer named Hedwig.

Harris was the first one to make Hedwig sparkle on stage by rocking glitter and heels.

When Harris first left the Tony Award-winning musical, actor Andrew Rannells took on the role.
