As previously announced, actor Taye Diggs is returning to Broadway in the title role of Hedwig and the Angry Inch beginning July 22. He recently sat down with HuffPost Live to discuss race in the theatre and stepping into the iconic role of Hedwig, the transgender rockstar. Diggs' casting represents a major step forward in colorblind casting in the theatre world, a trend that hopefully continues.
Bonus: Taye named his biceps. (Of course he did.)Watch the full HuffPost Live interview with Taye Diggs here. More Broadway casting news:
