Darren Criss is heading back to the stage as Hedwig!
The former Glee star will be reprising his role as Hedwig for the upcoming Herwig and the Angry Inch national tour, Billboard reports.
The tour is set to kick off this fall, starting off in San Francisco on October 4th.
“When I found out that the tour would be kicking off in my hometown of San Francisco—the city where I was introduced to Hedwig and the Angry Inch—I could think of no better excuse to get back into the heels of a character I loved and missed so very much,” Darren said in a statement.
“And since Los Angeles has become a second home for me, I relished the idea of seeing what kind of fun Hedwig would bring to the heart of Hollywood. Getting to share this fantastic Broadway production with the two great Californian cities of my own life story will hopefully be as much of a joy for me as it will be for audiences who will experience Hedwig’s life story on the West Coast!”
Darren will also be taking on the role of Prince Eric in The Hollywood Bowl’s upcoming production of The Little Mermaid this June.
Congrats to Darren on his new gig!
