HEDWIG is coming back, whether you like it or not! The story of a rock n’ roll gender-bender premiered off-Broadway in 1998 and rapidly became a cult hit – just as did the 2001 film version, which also won that year’s TEDDY AWARD. In the musical’s first German production (2013), HEDWIG is played by the extravagant Sven Ratzke.
Born in 1977, the singer and entertainer lives in Amsterdam and Berlin and has been performing solo shows all over Europe as well as in New York for more than 10 years. Part German, part Dutch, Ratzke is considered an Homme Fatale of the chanson and cabaret scene and is virtually unique in his interpretations of modern vaudeville theater which incorporate elements of cabaret and personality show.
Sven Ratzke is backed by his personal angry inches: Florian Friedrich (Bass & Musical Director), Christopher Noodt (Keys), Hans Schlotter (Drums), Jan Terstegen (Guitar).
