Darren Criss just signed on to star in the title role in the Hedwig and the Angry Inch Broadway tour!
The 29-year-old actor will launch the tour in his hometown of San Francisco before heading to Los Angeles.
“When I found out that the tour would be kicking off in my hometown of San Francisco — the city where I was introduced to Hedwig and the Angry Inch — I could think of no better excuse to get back into the heels of a character I loved and missed so very much,” Darren told EW. “And since Los Angeles has become a second home for me, I relished the idea of seeing what kind of fun Hedwig would bring to the heart of Hollywood. Getting to share this fantastic Broadway production with the two great Californian cities of my own life story will hopefully be as much of a joy for me as it will be for audiences who will experience Hedwig’s life story on the West Coast!”
Darren will star in Hedwig in San Francisco from October 4-30, and move to Los Angeles from November 1-27, before touring the rest of North America.
