Taye Diggs is all smiles while attending a media day for Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Tuesday (June 30) at the Lamb’s Club in New York City.
The 44-year-old actor is taking over the title role in the musical starting on July 22. He was joined at the photo call by his co-star Rebecca Naomi Jones and the show’s creator and original star, John Cameron Mitchell.
Taye will be playing a transgender woman in the musical and will have to dress in drag eight times a week.
“I’ve always told my friends I have a flaming gay man inside of me,” Taye told Entertainment Tonight. “She is coming out now! It’s fun and difficult. I don’t know how you girls do it in heels all day every day.”
