EXCLUSIVE: Watch Lena Hall's Unbelievable (and Tony-Winning!) Transformation
Lena Hall recently took home a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical (she keeps it on her fireplace mantle) for her turn as the gender-bending Yitzhak in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Playbill got an exclusive dressing room look as Hall readied for a performance and transformed from real life rocker chick (she fronts the loud and grungy band The Deafening) to a very convincing rocker dude. See Hedwig's sexy new artwork previewing Andrew Rannells in the title role.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
