When interviewed about the opportunity to take on Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Michael C. Hall had a quick answer. He told Broadway.com, "It's maybe my first and last chance to live out a glam rock fantasy, so it was kind of a no-brainer." Calling the rock musical a "profound" work, with music that "kicks ass." If a performer isn't prepared there is little doubt that Hedwig and the Angry Inch could do the same to an unsuspecting ego, because this isn't a part for just anyone willing to say yes.
It certainly allowed the star of Dexter and Six Feet Under to channel the beauty and grace of David Bowie, with the physical fortitude of Mick Jagger. Hall took the stage last Thursday and I got a chance to catch him at the Sunday matinee, just four performances into this voyage.
