Yitzhak finally gets to take Hedwig’s wig out of the box. Lena Hall will reprise her Tony award-winning portrayal of Yitzhak on the national tour of Hedwig and the Angry Inch alongside Darren Criss, who will put on some makeup to play the trans rock-and-roller. But in an interesting twist, Hall will also play the title role of Hedwig once a week when the tour kicks off in San Francisco before moving to Los Angeles. It’s just as Yitzhak always wanted: to snatch Hedwig’s wig to become the star. It’s a wicked little town.

Hall will appear as Hedwig in the following performances:

San Francisco
Sunday, October 9 at 7 p.m.
Wednesday, October 12 at 8  p.m.
Wednesday, October 19 at 8 p.m.
Wednesday, October 26 at 8  p.m.

Los Angeles
Sunday, November 6 at 6:30 p.m.
Sunday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m.
