Hedwig/Hanschel: East German rock singer and front woman of The Angry Inch. Formerly Hansel, a slip of a girly boy who grew up in communist East Berlin, fell in love with an American GI – became Hedwig and underwent a botched sex change operation in order to marry and move to the states. Glamorous, charismatic and always commanding even when at her most bitchy or vulnerable. Has had high highs and low lows. Vocal Range: A2-B4
Yitzhak: Hedwig’s Croatian male husband and roadie/back-up singer. He is Hedwig’s vocal sparring partner- theirs is an emotional and at times abusive relationship. The actress playing Yitzhak should be believable as a butch male but one that chafes at the bonds of traditional masculinity and longs to explore his feminine, creative side. Vocal Range: D4-A5
