Just try and tear her down! The new production of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's Hedwig and the Angry Inch begins preview performances on March 29 at the Belasco Theatre. The cast is led by Emmy winner Neil Patrick Harris as the transgender rock goddess, who will be joined by Lena Hall as Yitzhak.
Directed by Michael Mayer, Hedwig and the Angry Inch tells the story of a fictional rock ‘n’ roll band, fronted by Hedwig (Harris), a transgender woman from communist East Berlin. Between rock songs, Hedwig regales the audience with both humorous and painful stories about her life, including her botched sex change operation. The score includes “Tear Me Down,” “Wig in a Box,” “Wicked Little Town,” “Angry Inch” and more.
The show will officially open on Broadway April 22.
