DEXTER star Michael C. Hall will star in Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch



TV's favorite serial killer is ready to rock on Broadway...in heels! Dexter's Michael C. Hall will be the next star to don a wig and heels in the Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Current star Andrew Rannells will play the final performance of his limited engagement on October 12.

Although Hall was most recently seen in the Will Eno play The Realistic Joneses, he first made a name for himself in Broadway musicals, taking on the Emcee in Cabaret in 1999 and portraying Billy Flynn in Chicago in 2002.

Written by John Cameron Mitchell and directed by Michael Mayer,Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a fictional rock ‘n’ roll band, fronted by Hedwig, a transgender woman from communist East Berlin. Between rock songs, Hedwig regales the audience with both humorous and painful stories about her life, including her botched sex change operation. The score by Stephen Trask features “Tear Me Down,” “Wig in a Box,” “Wicked Little Town,” "The Origin of Love," “Angry Inch” and more.
