We’re used to seeing Taye Diggs in his romantic lead roles, so to see him as the flashy, transgendered frontman Hedwig in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch is completely out of the norm. People exclusively released the first photo of Diggs as Hedwig, and we have to admit, we’re intrigued.

Diggs told People that he is ready for his Hedwig debut. “Hedwig is the role of a lifetime,” he said. “I’m looking forward to being challenged performance-wise on many levels, as well as being humbled by the musical’s social implications. I also like wearing nail polish.” Take a look at Diggs as Hedwig below!
