Who would do such a thing?! Someone better get that wig back to Hedwig and fast or else there will be hell to pay.
Hall — who took over the role of East German transgender singer Hedwig from Andrew 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.”
Now there is suspicion the culprit will don the wig him- or herself come 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.”
So, be on the look out for anyone in a very good Hedwig wig this Friday night, that’s probably our thief.
