Hedwig and the Angry Inch will be directed by Ann Ngaire Martin and features Will Taylor* as Hedwig, and Lauren Singerman* as Yitzhak. The production will be musically directed by Adam Spiegel.
This award winning rock musical, with music & lyrics by Stephen Trask, tells the captivating story of Hedwig, a fourth-wall smashing genderqueer East German rock ’n’ roll goddess.
She weaves her tragically beautiful life story through a rock score and fearless monologues, aided by her band “The Angry Inch.” Hedwig’s tale of of love, longing, a botched sex change operation, revenge, and ultimately acceptance, is as relevant today as it was in its inception. Hedwig is sure to inspire anyone who has ever felt they’ve been given an inch when they deserved a mile.
