‘Glee’ Star Darren Criss Heads Back to Broadway to Star in ‘Hedwig and the Angry Itch’

Glee‘s Darren Criss is set to become the latest star to don drag as the new lead actor of hit Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Itch.

The actor/singer will head back to the New York stage on April 29 to take over the role of the cross-dressing German rocker from co-creator John Cameron Mitchell.

He will follow in the footsteps of Neil Patrick Harris and Dexter’s Michael C. Hall, who have both tackled the titular character on Broadway in the past year.

Criss made his Broadway debut in 2012, when he stepped into Daniel Radcliffe’s part as J. Pierrepont Finch in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.
