Big news from the Hollywood Pantages Theatre today: Darren Criss will star as Hedwig when the highly anticipated national tour of Hedwig and the Angry Inch makes its Los Angeles premiere at Hollywood Pantages Theatre in November. Criss previously played Hedwig on Broadway to critical acclaim for 12 weeks last year. Joining him from the original Broadway cast will be the members of Hedwig’s band The Angry Inch -- aka Tits of Clay –music director Justin Craig (guitar and keyboards), Matt Duncan (bass), Tim Mislock (guitar), and Peter Yanowitz (drums). The Tony Award-winning musical will run Nov 1 -27.
The landmark musical by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask is a genre-bending, fourth-wall-smashing musical sensation, with a pulsing score and electrifying performances that tells the story of one of the most unique characters to ever hit the stage. “Internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Robinson (Darren Criss) is out to set the record straight about her life, her loves, and the botched operation that left her with that “angry inch.”
Tickets are currently available for purchase with a season package to the Hollywood Pantages 2016-2017 Season. Individual tickets will go on sale to the general public at a later date to be announced. For more information visit www.HollywoodPantages.com.
