Michael C. Hall takes ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ role

NEW YORK – Michael C. Hall’s next step is going to be a gender bending one — the former Dexter star will play the rock chanteuse at the centre of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway.

Producers of the Tony Award-winning musical revival said Monday that Hall will pull on a miniskirt and play the German transsexual Hedwig at the Belasco Theatre starting Oct. 16, through Jan. 4.

Hall will be taking over from Andrew Rannells, the Tony Award-nominated star of The Book of Mormon on Broadway and Girls. Rannells, in turn, replaced Tony-winner and How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris. Rannells ends his run Oct. 12.

Hall was one of an impressive quartet of actors on Broadway starring in Will Eno’s play The Realistic Joneses this spring. The former TV sociopath joined Toni Collette, Marisa Tomei and Tracy Letts.

Hall has sung onstage before: He took over from Alan Cumming as the white-faced emcee in the last revival of Cabaret, a part he played almost 500 times. Now he’ll be rocking out tunes including “Sugar Daddy” and “Wicked Little Town” in platform heels.

In his first Broadway show, he was an understudy in David Hare’s Skylight in 1996. His break-out roles — as a funeral director on Six Feet Under and then Dexter — earned Hall Emmy Award nominations.
