Theyre called Hedwigians or Hed Heads. Fans of the off-Broadway musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch have become a permanent fixture at the run-down Jane Street Theatre. And the Goths, glitter girls, and preps were out in full force on June 4 to see their beloved Yitzak, Miriam Shor, take her final curtain call. Some fans traveled over three hours to witness the performance.
Its great to be appreciated, says Shor, who has logged in 500 performances, dating back to playwright John Cameron Mitchells 1997 workshop. Even when you think something is great, there is always the fear that it could slip through the cracks. Her departure comes after securing a role in the ABC sitcom Then Came You, to air Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.
Although Shor may have left the Jane Street Theatre, she
has not left Yitzak completely: A few days later, she flew to the Sundance film lab to
take part in a workshop with Mitchell, who has been adapting Hedwig for the big screen.
