Tony winner Lena Hall will reprise her role as Yitzhak in Hedwig and the Angry Inch in San Francisco and L.A.—but she will also play Hedwig for one performance a week, marking the first time anyone has played both.
I’m thrilled to be returning to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, performing not one, but two iconic roles in Los Angeles and my hometown of San Francisco. I have never been one to shy away from a challenge and playing Hedwig has always been a dream of mine. To be able to play both Yitzhak and Hedwig in the same day presents one of the biggest challenges I have seen to date and I’m so excited! Not only will I get to share the stage with my fellow San Francisco native and friend Darren Criss; but I will also get a chance to begin my own journey as the glam rock heroine Hedwig. To tell her story in my hometown and in Los Angeles is the greatest homecoming I can think of, and I am looking forward to sharing this journey with my friends, family and Hedheads.
Hall will appear as Hedwig in: San Francisco, Sunday, October 9 at 7:00 pm; Wednesday, October 12 at 8:00 pm; Wednesday, October 19 at 8:00 pm; and Wednesday, October 26 at 8:00 pm; and in: Los Angeles, Sunday, November 6 at 6:30 pm; Sunday, November 13 at 6:30 pm; Sunday, November 20 at 6:30 pm; and Friday, November 25 at 8:00 pm.
