Michael C. Hall Begins Performances In Hedwig on Broadway Today

via Broadway.com: Michael C. Hall steps into Andrew Rannells' heels as he begins performances in the Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on October 16 at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre. The Golden Globe winner will play opposite Tony winner Lena Hall, who continues as Yitzhak.

Although Hall was most recently seen on stage in the Will Eno play The Realistic Joneses, he first made a name for himself in Broadway musicals, taking on the Emcee in Cabaret in 1999 and portraying Billy Flynn in Chicago in 2002. Off-Broadway, his credits include Mr. Marmalade, Cymbeline, Macbeth, Timon of Athens, Henry V, The English Teachers, Corpus Christi, Romeo and Juliet and Skylight. Hall is best known for playing serial killer Dexter Morgan in Showtime's Dexter, earning one Golden Globe Award from five nominations and six Emmy Award nods. Other screen credits include HBO's Six Feet Under and the films Cold in July and Kill Your Darlings.

Written by John Cameron Mitchell and directed by Michael Mayer, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a fictional rock ‘n’ roll band, fronted by Hedwig, a transgender woman from communist East Berlin. Between rock songs, Hedwig regales the audience with both humorous and painful stories about her life, including her botched sex change operation. The score by Stephen Trask features “Tear Me Down,” “Wig in a Box,” “Wicked Little Town,” "The Origin of Love," “Angry Inch” and more.
