And they better look out. According to Page Six, the iconic 'do' currently being donned by Michael C. Hall in Hedwig and The Angry Inch on Broadway was stolen after a recent performance:
Hall — who took over the role of East German transgender singer Hedwig fromAndrew Rannells this month — has a climactic scene in which he rips off a wig and throws it to the stage floor at the Belasco Theatre.
“Normally, the crew gets it immediately after the curtain call,” explained a spy. But on Saturday night, “the wig was nowhere to be found. They suspect an eager fan grabbed it [off the stage] and made off with it.”
What could be the motive for such a heinous and disloyal act of thievery? The producers suspect Halloween:
“You do not mess with Hedwig’s wigs,” warned producer David Binder of the hair-raising caper. “I’m afraid for the poor person who did this, because Hedwig will find you — hunt you down, and do unspeakable things to you.”
He further added, “Trust me, you’d better not wear it in the Village on Friday. She’ll snatch it right off your head, and if she takes a handful of your actual hair, I can’t be held responsible.”
