Darren Criss to take over Hedwig on Broadway

“I’m the new Berlin Wall, baby.”

That’s right, folks. Glee‘s Darren Criss is returning to Broadway, after a successful 3-week run of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying back in 2012. This time, he’s filling Hedwig’s platform heels in Hedwig and the Angry Itch from April 29 through July 19. He’ll be taking over for the original Hedwig, John Cameron Mitchell, and joining the ranks of other recent Hedwigs like Neil Patrick Harris and Michael C. Hall.

Criss posted the announcement on Tuesday via Twitter and Facebook. Tickets can be purchased online now!
