Yitzhak: Female, 20-49
Hedwig's Croatian male husband and roadie/back-up singer; he is Hedwig's vocal sparring partner; theirs is an emotional and at times abusive relationship; the actress playing Yitzhak should be believable as a butch male but one that chafes at the bonds of traditional masculinity and longs to explore his feminine, creative side; very strong singer with rock and roll vibe; wide vocal range a must (High belt to a G); must have a convincing Balkan accent; actress should be able play basic percussion instruments - tambourine; maracas.
