That's right guys and gals, he's back!
For the first time in over a decade Taye Diggs will be returning to Broadway as the star in the Tony Award-winning hit Hedwig and the Angry Inch!
On July 19, the current star, Darren Criss, is set to exit the production at which point Diggs will take over headlining. He's officially signed on for a 12-week stint with the show, starring opposite Rebecca Naomi Jones and he'll start July 22, 2015!
The show revolves around a German emigrant, Hedwig, who is the victim of a botched sex-change operation, as she embarks on her journey to find love and stardom. The revival play — which originally opened as an off-Broadway production in 1998 — relaunched last year with Neil Patrick Harris as its star and ended up winning four Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical.
Since it launched, it's gone through quite a few actors playing the lead including:
It's about time this girl made it to Broadway!
Jennifer Hudson is ready to hit the big time in the fall when she makes her Broadway debut in the production of A Color Purple.
The production will be directed and designed by John Doyle, who got a director's Tony for Sweeney Todd in 2006. He opened his version of The Color Purple in London in 2013.
Can you even imagine!?
We have every confidence in Jennifer and in the rest of the cast to make this the best production of The Color Purple EVER!

Well, it looks like great minds think alike, because Laura Benanti did a pretty similar sketch with TheatreMania.com almost six months ago!
Or - dare we say it - opening musicalogue?!
LOLz! It's so obvious NPH is a seasoned pro at this sort of stuff, he even mentioned it in his 2013 Tonys opening musical number!
So, in honor of his next BIG gig, here's a look back at his opening number when he hosted the Tonys in 2013 (above)!!
Leave it to NPH to do it bigger and better! But the real question is…can he surpass Ellen DeGeneres' epic Oscar selfie?!
We knew it was coming, but now we get to see it!

Anna Wintour is not impressed!
She's basically sick of all the same styles being worn over and over again! While also exposing the truth behind many of your favorite starlets' red carpet style, she said:
Sweet Tits of Clay this is a brilliant idea!!
While Barney Stinson was legen - wait for it - dary in ferosh heels and full female garb, the producers needed to find a replacement for the show's new schedule.
Cue Girls star Andrew Rannells aka gay Elijah!
Andrew is no stranger to the Great White Way — in fact, he was Tony-nominated for the role
