“#TayeDiggs, the buffed, straight, 44-year-old sex symbol @ebonymagazine once called ‘‘the black Clark Gable,’’ is taking on the most gender-bending role on Broadway, starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch (@hedwigonbway). @tayediggsinsta, who got one of his first breaks as part of the original cast of ‘‘Rent,’’ is no stranger to @broadwaycom. But the role of #Hedwig is a lot different from most of the roles he has played on TV and on the big screen. In a glitter-laden rock musical, the East German chanteuse Hedwig Robinson recounts her tragic life story. ‘‘I assumed that nobody would ever have the open-mindedness to cast this character black,’’ @tayediggsinsta told #NYTMag. @ryanpfluger photographed @tayediggsinsta at a rehearsal and a costume fitting on July 7.” By nytimes on Instagram.
