ITW is thrilled for the opportunity to remount this extremely successful production which garnered stellar reviews during its run in November 2018. Montreal Theatre Hub called the production “a triumph” and In the Wings’ “most relishable theatrical production to date.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch features Truro native, Andrew Morrisey as Hedwig and California native/Montreal resident, Noelle Hannibal as Yitzhak. Montreal Theatre Hub said this about Morrisey’s performance, “The success of any production of ‘Hedwig’ frankly rests on the performance chops, stage presence, and emotional vulnerability of its eponymous character, and Morrisey rises to the occasion.”

This special production reunites the 2018 creative and production team which includes Verrucci, Baird, Sig Moser (Costume Design), Alexander Smith (Lighting Design) and Elisabeth Nyveen (Stage Manager) along with band members Stephen Menold (drums), Sebastian Balk-Forcione (drums) and Kevin Bourne (guitar).
