Michael C. Hall gets covered in glitter and makeup in these first photos of him in costume for the title role in the Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch!

The 43-year-old actor will be stepping into the heels of the character, first played by Neil Patrick Harris and then Andrew Rannells in the Tony-winning revival.

Michael will begin his limited engagement in the show starting on October 16. He will be in the show for three months with his final performance taking place on January 4. Make sure to get your tickets to see him live on stage right now!

'The Lion King' Sets Global Box Office Record for Stage Shows

The Lion King has become the top grossing stage show in box office history with a worldwide gross of $6.2 billion, according to the Associated Press.

The show surpassed The Phantom of the Opera, which has earned $6 billion over the years and still has the distinction of the longest running show in Broadway history.

“It’s difficult not to become emotional at this realization of the show’s impact,” said Thomas Schumacher, president and producer at Disney Theatrical Productions. “Our goal then was to tell the story purely and theatrically so that audiences could feel it in their heart. And, to this day, that is the audience experience whether they see the show in Madrid; Appleton, Wisconsin; South Africa; Tokyo or Broadway. Of that, we are deeply proud.”
