Craig will also serve as musical director of The Angry Inch. Phillips, Adams, Potter, and O'Heir have all been involved with previous incarnations of the piece, including the original production at the Jane Street Theatre and/or the film.
With a book by John Cameron Mitchell and a score by Stephen Trask, Hedwig and the Angry Inch will begin previews at the Belasco on March 29, with an opening set for April 22. Casting for the role of Yitzak will be announced in the coming weeks.
