gender-bending: Hedwig and the Angry Inch


Hedwig and the Angry Inch – Yitzhak

Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American GI and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West: unfortunately nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to.

Later Hedwig met Yitzhak (Miriam Shor) performing as a drag artist in Croatia and Yitzhak became a member of Hedwig’s band.
