*Taye Diggs has been tapped to play transsexual singer Hedwig on Broadway.

Producers of the Tony-Winning show “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” said Monday that the actor will take over the title role on July 22.

The show opened last season with Neil Patrick Harris starting off the Hedwigs — and winning a Tony Award — and was replaced by Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, co-creator John Cameron Mitchell and currently “Glee’s” Darren Criss.

Diggs, who has been onstage in “Chicago” and “Rent,” most recently starred on TNT’s “Murder in the First” and CBS’ “The Good Wife.”
