Hedwig is a GREAT role for Broadway actors, but it sounds like Taye Diggs just wanted it for the nail polish.
Seriously! In the words of Barney Stinson, true story.
“Hedwig is the role of a lifetime. I’m looking forward to being challenged performance-wise on many levels, as well as being humbled by the musical’s social implications.”
The 44-year-old quickly added after that note:
“I also like wearing nail polish.”
Imagine coming back to Broadway after not doing it for over 10 years and being paid to get a free manicure like all the time, just because your job requires it!
