HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH Postpones Israeli Premiere In Response To COVID-19 Outbreak

The Israeli premiere of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH has been postponed, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In a statement on the production's Facebook page it was said: "(...) This is unfortunate and saddening, but will not tear us down. We urge you to stay healthy - wash your hands well, avoid touching your face, cough and sneeze into your elbow and avoid outings that are not vital."

"We've been waiting 22 years for an Israeli Hedwig," the statement continued. "We can wait another few months."

As of today (03/15), Israeli health officials have banned gatherings of over 10 people, thus shutting down all theaters, shopping malls and other public places until further notice.

The John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask cult phenomenon opened Off-Broadway at the Jane Street Theatre over 20 years ago, and since rocked around the world, with productions in Japan, Italy, New Zealand, London and Mexico among others.

The recent Broadway production starring Neil Patrick Harris won 4 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Leading Actor in a Musical, and was critically acclaimed, famously declared by Rolling Stone "the best rock musical ever!"

The Israeli Hedwig creative team includes musical director Yuval Goldstein, lighting designer Eyal Daniel and makeup designer Alex Bezalel, and Roi Dolev (La Cage Aux Folles, Into the Woods) as the titular East-German transgender rockstar.

Members of the Angry Inch include Guy Lukatch (keyboard and guitar), Alon Putski Lukatch (bass and guitar), Elad Meiri (guitar) and Tomer Sagmon (drums).
