Michael C. Hall In 'Hedwig'

Hall’s casting as Hedwig was announced Monday. He will take over the starring role in the Broadway musical on Oct. 16 and continue onstage at the Belasco Theatre until his limited engagement ends Jan. 4, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Hall, best known for playing the eponymous serial killer with a code in Showtime’s Dexter, is taking over as the lead in Hedwig in the Angry Inch after runs by How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris and Andrew Rannells. Rannells, who took over for Harris on Aug. 20, will give his last performance Oct. 12.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch follows the search for love of a transgender rocker who arrives in America from East Germany. The musical, which has a book by John Cameron Mitchell, features music and lyrics by Stephen Trask.

Hall has previously appeared on Broadway in the play The Realist Jones (2014) and in musicals Chicago (2002) and Cabaret (1999).
