In light of recent community conversations and concerns, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2021 Sydney Festival season of HEDWIG and the ANGRY INCH.
In casting HEDWIG we auditioned a wide, diverse range of performers and no one from any background was excluded from this process, and were encouraged.
We wish to assure the Trans and LGBTQIA+ community that the issues raised are respected and taken very seriously. We appreciate your patience in giving us time to properly consider these concerns and respond accordingly.
Please note that comments or actions of any individual, including by way of any personal social media account, should not be taken as the views of the producer, or as endorsed by the producer. We do not believe in censoring legitimate conversation and will not condone silencing.
Further announcements about casting and production dates will be forthcoming. Current ticket holders will be contacted shortly.
