Just three months after ending his Drama Desk Award-winning run in The Realistic Joneses, Michael C. Hall will return to Broadway on October 16, filling the high heels and fishnets of Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The Dexter and Six Feet Under star will join the Tony-winning revival at the Belasco Theatre after Andrew Rannells departs on October 12. Hall's run in the show will conclude January 4.

Hall's Broadway musical credits include Billy Flynn in Chicago and the Emcee in Cabaret. He received five Emmy nominations for his performance as the serial killer Dexter Morgan on Showtime's Dexter as well as an Emmy for his work as David Fisher on Six Feet Under. He shares a last name with his Tony-winning Hedwig costar, Lena Hall, who will continue her run in the show.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch features a book by John Cameron Mitchell and score by Stephen Trask. Michael Mayer directs the production, which utilizes a band made up of Justin Craig (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Matt Duncan (bass, vocals), Tim Mislock (guitar, vocals), and Peter Yanowitz (drums, vocals).
