    Darren Criss, the former "Glee" star, had so much fun playing an East German transsexual on Broadway that he's taking her on the road.

    Criss will kick off a national tour of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" in October at the SHN Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco and the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles a month later. He then will take it on a national tour.

    Criss made his Broadway debut in 2012 as J. Pierrepont Finch in "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying."

    Written by John Cameron Mitchell and composer Stephen Trask, "Hedwig" is a tale of obsession, glam rock, a botched sex-change operation and a quest for identity.

    It was a cult hit off-Broadway and made into a 2001 film.
