The Tony Award-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch has a new (unconventional) leading man: Michael C. Hall. The Golden Globe and Drama Desk Award winner is no stranger to the stage. He recently starred in Will Eno’s Broadway production of The Realistic Jones, directed by Sam Gold and co-starring Toni Collette, Tracy Letts, and Marisa Tomei. He made his Broadway debut in 1999 as the Emcee in Sam Mendes’ revival of Cabaret and portrayed Billy Flynn in 2002 in the revival of Chicago. His television credits include Dexter (SAG, Golden Globe awards; five Emmy nominations) and Six Feet Under (two SAG ensemble awards, Emmy nomination). On film, Hall recently appeared in Cold in July and Kill Your Darlings.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the musical with book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask, directed by Michael Mayer won four Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, Best Featured Actress (Lena Hall), and Best Lighting (Kevin Adams). In addition, the production has been honored with Best Musical Revival by the Drama Desk, Drama League and Outer Critics Circle Awards.
