    Taye Diggs is about to make a stylish return to the Great White Way.

    The actor and Broadway alum will take over the titular role in the smash revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at Diggs glammed up in glittery makeup as the character.

    "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," Diggs says in the new issue of PEOPLE, adding: "I also like wearing nail polish."

    The actor will start his 12-week run as Hedwig – a transgender rocker who sings about her botched surgery – in N.Y.C. on July 22, replacing Glee star Darren Criss. And Diggs is actually the sixth actor to take on the role since its Broadway return last year. Neil Patrick Harris scored a Tony as the revival's original star, while Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, John Cameron Mitchell (the musical's co-writer) and Criss all donned high heels and fishnets as well.

    His turn in Hedwig marks Diggs' first time on a Broadway stage in over a decade: He last appeared in Wicked in 2004.

    I thought Hedwig was Harry Potter's owl.

    If they were gonna cast a black actor they should have cast Terrence Howard, he has to be angry over his inch.

    This B list actor has done it all. Movies, television and even Broadway. He also does it all when it comes to sex. He has never come out and told anyone about his love of men, but the formerly married actor has been sexing his way through most of the cast in his latest project whether they be men or women. Taye Diggs "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"

    Placing a negro in a role like that usually guarantees a short run. He'll be begging to be in Stomp The Yard 4 in a few years.

    Not sure what his current wife thought of his actions. Probably the same as his other wives which is why they are all exes. This B+ mostly television actor who has troubled relationships in the past had a recent return to television in a monster network hit. Over the weekend at an after party, he was taking advantage of his fame and hitting on women right and left while his wife just sat quietly at a table.

    Terrence Howard ( I guess we know what she thought since they got divorced a short time later)
