  • [2005-02-21]
  • Top star Cho Seung-woo, who has been riding high on his popularity since his appearances in the musical `Jekyll & Hyde` and the movie `Marathon,` has chosen the musical `Hedwig and the Angry Inch` as his next work. He will play the role of a transvestite rock singer in the musical, which will premiere in April.

    `Hedwig and the Angry Inch` is an off Broadway musical about an East German boy named Hansel who falls in love with a U.S. soldier and undergoes transgender surgery in order to marry him. But after Hansel becomes a woman and changes his name to `Hedwig,` the American soldier abandons him. Brokenhearted, he goes to the United States to pursue his dream of becoming a rock singer and to find his identity.

    Cho Seung-woo plans to play in the musical unit mid-May.  This will be the first time the musical is staged in Korea.
