‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ to Close on Broadway in September

After several A-list stars and a Tony, the “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” revival is set to end next month.

The final certain will close on Sept. 13 during the 3 p.m. show at the Belasco Theater, it was announced on Tuesday.

“When we announced our limited 16-week Broadway engagement of Hedwig, never in my wildest dreams did I think it would run for a year and a half,” producer David Binder said in a statement. “Hedwig heralded a historic year of acceptance and celebration across America.”

The production went from a 16-week limited run to a 76-week run after positive reception. When it closes, it will have had 22 previews and 506 regular performances.

John Cameron Mitchell wrote the book, with music and lyrics by Stephen Trask. Michael Mayer directed. The show won the 2014 Tony for best musical revival.

Neil Patrick Harris was the first big actor to step into Hedwig’s high heels in the revival, to be followed by Andrew Rannells, Michael C. Hall, Mitchell, Darren Criss and Taye Diggs.

“Hedwig” fans, however, shouldn’t get too upset just yet — a national tour of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” will start in San Francisco Oct. 4, and productions are also planned for the West End and Australia.
