And speaking of Hedwig, it’s fantastic to see that Lena Hall — whom I gushed over in an earlier post — is rising through the ranks on Broadway: now she’s playing Yitzhak alongside Neil Patrick Harris’ titular transsexual in the revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, taking on a role made essential by Miriam Shor’s indelible vocals. Here’s hoping this leads to Hall getting much-deserved recognition on her own terms.
