Taye Diggs is going to be the latest star to take over the titular character in Broadway’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch. PEOPLE magazine exclusively revealed the first photo (below) of Taye as rock star from East Berlin.

“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,” Taye told PEOPLE in the new issue, adding: “I also like wearing nail polish.”

Taye is going to be the sixth actor to take on the role since it returned to Broadway last year. He starts his 12-week run, replacing Glee‘s star Darren Criss, on July 22.
