The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Dexter Does Broadway!

Honey Buzz ~ Dexter Does Broadway!

Following in the high-heeled footsteps of Andrew Rannells and Neil Patrick Harris, Michael C Hall, better known as the plastic wrap loving serial killer, Dexter, is heading to Broadway!

The first images of Michael C. Hall for Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway were released today showing the star of Showtime's serial-killer drama donning a full face of makeup and channeling a different side of Hedwig's personality.

The Dexter actor will take over the title role on Oct. 16 at the Belasco Theatre. His limited engagement will run through Jan. 4, opposite Tony-winner Lena Hall.

Hedwig — which has a book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask — centers on an East German transgender rocker searching for love and completeness in America. The lead character of the Tony-winning musical revival was previously played by Neil Patrick Harris and is currently rocked by Andrew Rannells, who will play his final performance on Oct. 12.

Even more so, his facial expressions — a furrowed brow in one shot and a straight-on look into his eyes in another — showcase the deep pain and hurt of his character, rather than the enticing attitude of the rocker that has been captured by the show's now-signature open-mouth pose.

By contrast, Neil Patrick Harris' posters for Hedwig are very sexual while Andrew Rannells' are almost playful. I'm intrigued to see what Michael C Hall will bring to the role...
