Any ethnicity. Any queer gender expression. Any age over 18. Any body type.

Description: Hedwig is the lead singer and musical genius of the punk rock band “The Angry Inch”, on a revenge tour across the nation. A ferocious force of nature, Hedwig is equal parts rock goddess, stand-up comedian, and vulnerable human being. Hedwig must be able to transform in and out of many roles throughout the show while remaining grounded in a strong base character. 

This role includes…
References to sexual abuse, the body, and genital-centered discussions of gender.

Eastern Berlin Accent. 

Improvisational skills and the ability and willingness to interact with the audience.

Guitar skills are a plus but not required.

YITZHAK – Vocal range: Wide vocal range a must (high belt to an A5)
Any ethnicity. Any gender expression. Any age over 18. Any body type.

Description: Hedwig’s husband and roadie/back-up singer. Yitzhak is bound by the constraints of traditional masculinity but longs to explore a more feminine side.


Yitzhak has a killer voice but must always be hidden behind Hedwig. 

This role includes…
Croatian accent.

Masculine and feminine presentations. 

BAND - Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keys.


The band is very much a part of the show, storytelling, so we are looking for highly engaging, highly skilled rock musicians.
