Taye Diggs Respects Ex-Wife Idina Menzel More Than Ever

Taye Diggs lays across the piano in this Hedwig and the Angry Inch rehearsal photo taken for his recent New York Times profile.

The 44-year-old actor, who hasn’t appeared on Broadway since a three week stint in Wicked opposite ex-wife Idina Menzel in early 2004, opened up about why he respects her even more now that he’s doing a show as a dad.

“I tip my hat to Idina. She’s been doing it… and with Walker. I look at her with even more respect and a little bit of awe. TV is like a walk in the park,” Taye said.

Idina spent a year on Broadway starring in the musical If/Then and she will soon take the show on the road this fall.

“I told Idina — ‘I want a chance to show everybody everything. I can dance and I can sing, and everybody knows I can act,’” he added.

Taye Diggs Performs for First Time as Broadway's 'Hedwig'

Taye Diggs shows off his physique while in character during his first night in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the Belasco Theatre on Wednesday (July 22) in New York City.

The 44-year-old actor took over the role from Darren Criss.

“The heels. The heels are a lot. That’s where most of the concentration goes during rehearsal,” Taye recently told Playbill.com. “I bought some lipstick yesterday, and I’m going to slowly start to integrate that — just to see what it’s like to sing and talk and act with a foreign substance on my mouth, makeup. I call it ‘Hedwig School.’ It’s definitely a learning experience, to say the least.”
